Poll shows viewers against same-sex couples dancing on DWTS

Same-sex couples may compete next season on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. Portia De Rossi, who is part of a same-sex couple, has been evasive about reports that she will hit the dance floor — and her wife Ellen DeGeneres admits it’s a possibility.

On her daytime talk show Friday, Degeneres says: “I think that’s great that they’re going to do that. I don’t know if she is going to do it or not. She won’t tell me. We’ll find out.”

But according to a poll on UsMagazine.com, a majority of viewers don’t want to see same-sex couples dancing on the show.

As of this writing, nearly 3500 people had voted, with almost 65 percent answering “no” to this question: Would you watch same sex couples on DWTS? Would you watch, and if not, why? I would definitely still watch. Check out the latest poll numbers and vote here.
