There has not been a great deal of movement in the figures since the last time the question was polled on 13 August: with a 1% increase in those in favour of same sex marriage (55%) and a 3% increase in those opposed (36%). This translates to a 4% reduction in the don’t knows: moving from 13% in August to 9% this week.

There has been little movement in the results in the two years since the question was first polled in November 2010.
