THE Maranoa electorate and our reported disapproval of gay marriage is making headlines and waves nationally.

Last night, SBS program The Feed, ran an episode filmed partly in Warwick to find out why this electorate is the only in the country opposed to gay marriage.

The show's producers took their cameras to Warwick streets, parks and to the pig and calf and sheep sales to talk to the general public and our Federal member about gay marriage.

Do you support gay marriage?

This poll ended on 20 October 2016.

Current Results

Yes

62%

No

37%

This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.

A Daily News poll from September 26 showed 77% of people surveyed supported gay marriage, so is our disdain for the issue being blown out of proportion?
