Poll: New Yorkers support marriage equality; under 35 voters about ready to marry the notion itself

by Jeremy Hooper

The anti-LGBT groups will surely continue to use that silly poll commissioned by the anti-equality activists at the Alliance Defense Fund and conducted by the conservative polling firm Public Opinion Strategies. Fortunately, the majority of folks who care about little things like fact and balance and objectivity will turn to the trusted Quinnipiac instead:

New York State voters support 54 - 40 percent a law allowing same-sex couples to marry, with voters under 35 supporting the measure 70 - 26 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Voters 35 to 64 years old also support the measure, while voters over 65 oppose it 57 - 37 percent. Support remained consistent before and after passage of the bill.

Oh come on, 65+ crowd! Don't you know that the secret to staying young is (a) good moisturizer, (b) healthy diet, (c) staying active, and (d) licking the sweet frosting off of a same-gendered cake topper?
