Commentary
There are differences and similarities in how men and women respond to the three questions in this ZEUS poll. In questions 1 and 3, women are far less supportive of the wealthy European woman and her two young husbands, and are slightly more likely to be strong supporters of same sex marriage.
Both men and women are equally against the wealthy Mormon man having a relationship with two sixteen year old wives.
In question 1 over 52% of women respondents finds the relationship disturbing and/or they are against it, 18% do not and 30% are Undecided/Canít Answer. 59% of men do not find the relationship disturbing while 26% do, and 16% are Undecided.
45% of women respondents are strong supporters of same sex marriage, while 27% of male respondents are strong supporters. 62% of male respondents are NOT strong supporters of same sex marriage, while 32% of female respondents are NOT.
Clearly, the high Undecided for questions 1 and 3 are due to women respondents.
There are twice as many male respondents who support the Italian womanís marriage to two men one half her age as STRONGLY support same sex marriage.
Male respondents who support the relationship in question 1 anecdotally suggest the reason they do not support the relationship in question 2 is because the young women in the second question are presumed not to have had freedom of choice. Anecdotally, many men and women respondents are not STRONG supporters of same sex marriage blaming its inception to the issues currently at hand such as the Bountiful polygamy trial before the BC Supreme Court and Chief Justice Bauman.
A poll of 535 respondents throughout the province of British Columbia November 25-27, 2010. Margin of error 4.24%, 19 times out of 20 @ 95% confidence.
