  •  Is there a Bradley effect on gay marriage? (4+ / 0-)

    I think there's been a significant shift. But some of these polls just seem too optimistic. Gay marriage only won with 52 or 53% in relatively liberal states in a pretty good year for Democrats. Now that more people associate opposition to gay marriage with bigotry, I have to believe a couple percent of people are lying to pollsters. Some people may only be comfortable with civil unions, and may use that as a reason to vote no on a gay marriage referendum. But if forced to  say which side they're on, they may be more comfortable saying they're pro-gay marriage.
