A majority of American voters want the Boy Scouts to lift its ban against gay members and leaders, a new Quinnipiac poll finds.
The Boy Scouts of America announced last week that it was considering changing its policy of banning gay scouts and troop leaders. On Wednesday the organization said that decision would be delayed until a national meeting in May.
In the Quinnipiac poll, 55 percent of respondents said the scouts should drop the ban, while 33 percent said it should remain.
There is a significant gender gap in the results. Women back gay scouts by a 61 to 27 percent margin; among men its a narrower 49 to 39 percent margin.
Catholics are also far more likely than Protestants to support the inclusion of gay scouts.
