Opposition to same-sex marriage up in KY

According to a new Bluegrass State Poll, opposition to same-sex marriage is up seven percent. Oh my.
[T]he percentage of registered voters in Kentucky opposing it has increased to 57 percent this month compared to 50 percent in July. 
A Bluegrass Poll conducted March 3-8 shows that support for gay marriage also has dropped, from 37 percent to 33 percent.
I was quoted in the story.

In a radio interview, Fairness Alliance director Chris Hartman said that the results reflected a fear by people who think the tide is turning against them. Wait a minute, the tide of people turning against same sex marriage is made up of people who believe the tide is turning against them?


Go Chris.

Its nice for you that a noisy poll gives you a shred of hope that homophobia is making a comeback in Kentucky. I bet fifty years ago polls on interracial marriage bumped up and down as well. Not that polls are going to matter when the Supreme Court reverses the Sixth Circuit this Summer.
