The questions were placed on Ipsos MORI’s Scottish Public Opinion Monitor, a quarterly telephone survey conducted among a representative sample of 1,000 adults drawn from the general public across Scotland.
Christopher McLean, Senior Research Executive at Ipsos MORI Scotland said:
“As the Scottish Government prepares to publish the results of its consultation on same-sex marriage, this latest poll indicates that a clear majority of Scots support same-sex couples having the right to marry. However, it also highlights the considerable gulf in opinion between the generations, with around three quarters of younger people agreeing compared to less than half of those aged 55 and over.”
- Results are based on a survey of 1,003 respondents conducted by telephone between 7th June and 13th June 2012
- Data are weighted by age, sex and working status using census data, and tenure using SHS data, and by public-private sector employment by Scottish Government Quarterly Public Sector Series data.
- An asterisk (*) indicates a percentage of less than 0.5% but greater than 0.
- Where results do not sum to 100, this may be due to multiple responses or computer rounding.
- Where the base size is less than 30 the number (N) rather than the percentage of respondents is given.
More Britons want Government to make fast decisions in a crisis than wait for all the evidence, as long as they’re open about it
Latest research from Ipsos MORI shows that when given the choice, more Britons opt for Government to act quickly even if that means not all the evidence is available over waiting, when it comes to a crisis.
