Voters today are divided 48 – 46 percent on the issue of same-sex marriage, reversing the 55 – 36 percent opposition to same-sex marriage in a July, 2008, survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University. White Catholics support it 49 – 43 percent.

Climate change did not cause Superstorm Sandy, voters say 53 – 37 percent.
