Lithuania's results were similar to Poland's (25 percent approved of same-sex marriage). Estonians were more tolerant (31 percent) while Latvians were slightly less approving (19 percent).

The survey was conducted between 30 May and 8 June. 27,718 EU citizens took part in the poll, including 1,004 Lithuanians.
