Big Split…

“Fifty-three percent of Connecticut residents support Friday’s historic ruling by the state Supreme Court that legalizes gay marriage, while 42 percent of residents polled said they do not. The weekend poll, taken for The Courant by the Center for Survey Research and Analysis at the University of Connecticut, showed a wide difference of opinion among Democrats and Republicans over an emotional social issue. Democrats said they support the court’s ruling by 72 percent to 24 percent, while Republicans have nearly the opposite view: 29 percent favor the ruling and 69 percent are against.” [Hartford Courant]
