Should the law be changed to allow same-sex marriage?

A POLL has found little more than half the population of the Cowper electorate supports same sex marriage.

Last year, the ABC's Vote Compass asked Australians if they agreed or disagreed with the statement: Marriage should only be between man and a woman.

It received responses from more than 1.2 million and 55% indicated they supported same-sex marriage while 33% opposed it and 11% were neutral.

The poll found 55% of the Cowper and Page electorates supported same-sex marriage.
