Last week I wrote about public opinion polls, arguing that they are influenced by people's desire to give socially acceptable answers to human questioners and that poll results can differ vastly when a robotic caller is employed. If, however, we accept as true a shift in public opinion on same-sex marriage, what trends and forces explain that change?
In May 2010, a CNN/Gallup Poll reported that 53 percent of men and 51 percent of women agreed that same-sex marriages were "morally acceptable." Only 46 percent opposed same-sex marriages. This was a surprising result.
