Could gay marriage bring down the Australian government?

Gay marriage could bring down the Australian coalition government of Malcolm Turnbull at the next election according to a new poll commissioned for P-FLAG which found that a quarter of Coalition voters could change their vote over the issue.

Twenty six per cent of Coalition voters said they would be likely to support a change in government if marriage equality laws were not dealt with before the next election.

Aanother 40 per cent said they would back a change in government over it.

Only ten per cent said they would be less likely to vote for a government that allowed a free vote on gay marriage.
