Taipei, Nov. 28 (CNA) In a survey of nearly 1,100 respondents, 46.3 percent said they support same-sex
marriage legalization, while 45.4 percent expressed opposition, according to the results of the survey released on Monday by the Taiwanese Public Opinion Foundation.
You Ying-lung (游盈隆), chairman of the non-government, non-profit organization, said society at large has “zero consensus” on the issue and there is a serious divide, since those for and those against are almost the same.
Separated by age, among those under 40 years old, 64 percent support same-sex marriage legalization, while more than 50 percent are opposed among those over 40, according to the survey.
Among women, 49.6 percent support same-sex marriage and 41.9 percent said no, while 42.8 percent men support it and 52.1 percent do not. [FULL STORY]
