Which statement on gay marriage is right?

Success - Article sent! close

In his column on Aug. 15 titled "Sometimes, just getting quotes right isn't enough," DuPage Editor Jim Davis writes that, "In their passion, a few people might have gotten caught up in the moment and said some things that weren't factually accurate, such as the majority of Americans being opposed to gay marriage."

I am wondering how Mr. Davis obtained his information that the quoted statement was not factually accurate. Thirty-two states have held a referendum on same-sex marriage and all 32 saw the referendum defeated. That seems to me to strongly support the quote that the majority of Americans oppose gay marriage. In his column Mr. Davis does not tell us the basis for his statement. Could it be that Mr. Davis' statement is the one that is not factually correct?
