For the first time, support for gay marriage in Ohio has reached the 50 percent threshold in the Quinnipiac Poll, a new survey released today shows.
Led by support among young voters, exactly half of Ohioans back same-sex marriage, compared to 44 percent who oppose it.
The new findings, which mirror public opinion shifts across the nation, represent a reversal since December of 2012, when 47 percent of Ohioans opposed gay marriage and 45 percent supported it. The change comes almost entirely from independent voters; Democrats support and Republicans oppose gay marriage by about the same percentages as before.

First poll question: Are you gay? If not, hang up.

Mob rule is not what we’re founded on and it’s a dangerous thing.
Gays should not be abused for being gay. Nor should god’s institution of marriage be destroyed.
These “young” voters are brainwashed, ignorant drones who have had Virtue targeted and killed by Sex Ed in the schools. It warps their WHOLE perception of “Good and Evil”. Flips it actually. Miley Cyrus Ethics.
Another state going to the dogs. We can still primary Rob Portman though.
tyranny of the majority
Tyranny of the tiny minority who have brainwashes a small majority of young morons to oppress normal people.
It only took a couple of decades to create support for something that has never existed in 5000 years of human history.
This is one for the books, for those who would study propaganda.
But the basic problem (and the basic opportunity for propagandists) is that most people get their sense of right and wrong from the culture. They have no way of gauging when the culture itself has gone off course.
The language in these polls is constantly changing, being carefully massaged under scientific polling methods to produce the exactly “correct” results.
And still they can only manage 50%.
I Googled for Quinnipiac Poll and among other weird things they show Ohio going 8:1 in favor of medpot.
Granted that probably too big a deal is being made out of marijuana, bigger than it deserves, but still. That puts the high in Ohio.
People even BELIEVE in these pseudo polls? I actually studied political science in the late 70’s as one of the few electives in an electrical engineering undergraduate curriculum. One thing that was emphasized about getting a scientifically valid poll was that the setup could take months. A large sample wasn’t required but it had to be painstakingly pursued. You’d have to really pester your target household to answer, and only go very reluctantly to an alternate.
Somehow this got bastardized to quickie phone polls.
Far as any reasoning person is concerned, Quinnipiac is some Algonquin word meaning bovine excrement.
No, I believe the poll. Being "in favor" will end up at around 75-80% of the population but will never include me.
Well, I don’t know about not in human history. There are hints that it was going on in the antediluvian world in Matthew 24:38, and of course in Sodom and Gomorrah.
“We can still primary Rob Portman though.”
Please do. I love the smell of stupid people getting embarassed.
We have lost the war. Losing the Nation is next.
There’s also Canada’s actual experience. After giving in to the propaganda, after more than 8 years Canada has fewer than 100 such “couples” to show for it.
Actual genuine homos overwhelmingly don’t want faux marriage, and are only being bludgeoned into what political activity they do have by a handful loud mouth activists.
The participation rate in the actual Sodom reached a startling height. It’s almost as if it were required by the local law, not just allowed. Not even Abraham’s arithmetic prevailed.
Apparently we’ve lost you, so no sense telling you to get lost.
Defeatism is a lack of faith in God. Media lies are not victories in “the war”, either.
You’ve been fighting it on the wrong front, and God is making that fact more and more obvious.
This does not need to be a culture war.
It needs to be a gospel war.
This is the simple truth of it.
