More polling data suggesting Obama changed minds with gay marriage stance

Interestingly, this poll suggests that black opposition to gay marriage shrunk, though it didn’t turn into more support.  Rather, they moved from “against” to “unsure.”  Which is still a marked improvement.  Among Latinos, our numbers improved as well.

This poll showed only 41% support for same-sex marriage.  Clearly there’s some variation in the recent polls, with many showing supporting in the low 50s.  I’m not entirely sure why the polls are so varied, but still, the low-50s polls aren’t complete outliers.  We’ve seen that number repeated in numerous polls.  All of these polls agree that public opinion is definitely shifting, and it’s shifting our way.
