The survey shows Swiss voters on the way to support same-sex marriage

A new poll suggests that Swiss voters are about to vote yes in a “marriage for all” vote, which supporters see as an important step towards equal rights, but opponents fear they could erode traditional family values

GENEVA – A poll released on Wednesday suggests that Swiss voters are about to vote yes in a “marriage for all” vote, which supporters see as an important step towards equal rights, but opponents fear they could erode traditional family values.

The latest pre – referendum on SSR on 26 September showed that 63% of respondents support the measure, 35% are against and 2% are unsure.

This is a six percentage point reduction in the level of support from a previous survey on the issue, which was published at the end of August, but suggests that the margin remains broad.

Same-sex marriage is not legal in Switzerland, but they can enter into registered partnerships.

The Swiss government supports the measure, which would also allow rapid naturalization of foreign same-sex spouses and give married couples access to sperm donation.

The survey among 13,261 registered voters was conducted from 1-9 September and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.
