Gay marriage has no effect on Iowans' lives

According to a recent poll, 92 percent of Iowans are either not gay or lesbian or are but didn't want to get married anyway.

The Des Moines Register polled Iowans about their opinions on same-sex marriage four months after the state's highest court legalized the practice. And 92 percent of them (with a margin of error of 3.5 percent in the 803-person sample) answered this question "no real change at all:"

Since marriage for gay and lesbian couples was allowed last spring, have you noticed mostly positive or mostly negative changes in your life or no real change at all?
