Ohioans also do not support homosexual marriage.

So PPP is back to being a respectable outlet when it's release a number you want, eh?

But support civil unions by a 2-1 margin.

But yes, gay marriage is unpopular---even 3 points more so than Gov. Kasich.

Romney is only 1% higher than in the PPP poll. So, Romney is polling from 43% to 44%, while Obama is polling from 45% to 50%. I think Rasmussen had him at about 48%. Obama clearly has the higher ceiling here at this point.

The margin is not as important as the actual numbers, just like last time everyone was saying McCain could win MI, even though he only polled from around 40% to 45%, while Obama would poll from 40% to 50%.

No, I am applying my standard -6 to PPP. A standard -6 would have given them the correct North Carolina result rather than a silly one.

But...

A few other notes from Ohio:

Quote
-Voters in the state are opposed to gay marriage by a 52/35 margin. We see the standard enormous generational gap there- young voters favor it by a 57/30 spread but seniors are against it 60/26. When you expand the discussion to civil unions though 65% of voters support some form of legal recognition for gay couples to only 32% who are opposed. Even a majority of Republicans at 50/46 support either gay marriage or civil unions.

Civil unions are a stage in acceptance of homosexuality as a way of life. They are the means of enacting non-discrimination laws. The next time that Democrats have a majority in the state legislature the issue will surely go up. (Michigan and Pennsylvania are much the same).

Ohio does not yet recognize civil unions. But I can see it in the next group of states (Pennsylvania, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Florida) to do so.
