Iowa Poll: Many Iowans Conflicted, Uninterested In Gay Marriage Debate

The Associated Press reports:

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – A new poll suggests many Iowans are either conflicted or aren’t interested in the gay marriage issue.

The Iowa Poll commissioned by the Des Moines Register shows 30 percent of those surveyed didn’t have an opinion on gay marriage, 37 percent were opposed to it and 32 percent were in favor of it.

About 17 percent of Iowans polled said they weren’t sure what to make of a November vote that ousted three state Supreme Court justices for their role in a unanimous 2009 decision that legalized gay marriage, and 25 percent said they wouldn’t vote on a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.

The poll was based on 800 interviews with adult Iowans contacted Feb. 13-16 by landline or cell phone. The margin of error is 3.5 percentage points.
