Western Sydney's Attitude Towards Marriage Equality Revealed
It seems there’s a big difference in the attitudes towards marriage equality between Sydney’s Eastern and Western suburbs.
The city returned the highest yes vote in all of Australia.
In the West, however, a mere 2 out of 12 seats returned a majority yes vote.
The biggest push back was in Auburn – Yagoona and Bankstown.
Penrith and the Blue Mountains were the only seats in the west to vote yes.
Experts are putting it down to a high immigrant population - where Muslims and Catholics make up a lot of the votes.
