RIWI Predicts the 2017 Australian Same-Sex Marriage Referendum


RIWI successfully predicted the outcome of the Australian same-sex marriage referendum based on a Viacom / RIWI survey which revealed 60% support for same-sex marriage in Australia – nearly matching the 61.6% result of the public referendum in Australia (conducted officially in Australia via the country’s postal service between September 12 and November 7 2017).

“Australia’s Parliament voted to move forward with legalization. This decision followed a historic referendum determining that 62% of the Australian populace favored legal recognition of the unions of gay and lesbian couples.”
