Gay Marriage Supporters Cautious Over Positive Poll Numbers

The results are encouraging, but maybe too good to believe


In Maryland, Maine and Washington, voters appear to be warming to the idea of legal marriage of same sex couples, raising the likelihood that come Election Day at least one of those states will join six others that have approved gay marriage.

That is, if the polls are to be believed.

Gay marriage activists suspect voters—especially those who believe marriage should be only between a man and a woman—might be unwilling to voice their true feelings in polls.
