KSL ReportingA local survey reflects a growing acceptance of legal rights for same-sex couples in Utah.

Just under half, 48 percent, of 521 people in the poll say unmarried couples should be able to form civil unions to protect legal rights; 42 percent say they oppose such unions.

Fifty-four percent say same-sex partners should be eligible for employer benefits. And almost 69 percent say same sex partners should be able to visit a partner in the hospital and be included in end-of-life decisions.

The poll was a joint project by the The University of Utah Social Research Institute and the Gay and Lesbian community center.
