Dueling Polls on Gay Marriage

A month after a Brown University poll found Rhode Islanders favoring gay marriage by a 60-31 margin, a new poll commissioned by an anti-gay marriage group has come to a far different conclusion, with 43 percent opposing and 36 percent favoring.

Hmm...As the ProJo points out in a blog item, 68 percent of respondents to the most recent poll, paid for by the National Oragnization for Marriage, were over age 50.

That could, of course, help to explain the results. But it also underscores why gay marriage opponents are so intent on putting the issue on the ballot - older people tend to vote in much bigger numbers.
