Bleeding Heartland: Iowans not eager to overturn marriage equality

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Marriage equality is here to stay in Iowa, if the latest statewide
poll for the Des Moines Register is any guide: "Forty-one percent say
they would vote for a (constitutional amendment to) ban (same-sex
marriage), and 40 percent say they would vote to continue gay
marriage. The rest either would not vote or say they are not sure."
... Selzer and Co. surveyed 803 Iowans between September 14 and 16,
and the poll has a margin of error of 3.5 percent. I recommend
clicking through to view the chart showing the breakdown by party
affiliation on this issue. Among independents, only 44 percent either
oppose or strongly oppose the Iowa Supreme Court's decision that
cleared the way for marriage equality, while 32 percent "don't care
much" and 22 percent either favor or strongly favor it.
