A new poll finds that Indiana residents are evenly split on legalizing gay marriage, but a majority oppose amending the state constitution to ban it.

The poll taken for the Bowen Center for Public Affairs at Ball State University and WISH-TV found that 45 percent of those surveyed supported allowing gay people to wed, while 45 percent opposed the idea. Ten percent had no opinion.

However, 54 percent said they opposed a constitutional ban on gay marriage, an idea that has been repeatedly pushed by Republican legislators.

The random statewide phone survey of 602 Hoosier adults was conducted Nov. 12-24 by the Princeton Survey Research Associates International. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.
