In a statewide poll conducted for CBS News, only 48% of New York Democrats said they support gay marriage, a low number that surprised the poll takers. The lowest support comes from black Democrats, 45% of whom are “strongly opposed”. Gay marriage did not make the top ten list of concerns for Democratic New Yorkers. The poll takers noted that the majority of support for gay marriage came from the NYC area. (Via 365Gay.com)
Will these lower-than-expected numbers affect Democratic strategy? How will the GOP exploit this new poll?
