Q31 should have been asked before Q30. You cannot ask whether gay marriage should be allowed/not allowed and then ask about the impact of gay marriage on the respondents personally. The response to Q30 clearly influences the response to Q31, driving up the responses for both positive impact and negative impact. That is why PPP's responses differ from those obtained by the Des Moines Register poll. Next time, flip the order and ask about personal impact first.

Also, since this is an IA poll, it would have been useful to poll specifically on the only public policy proposal relating to this issue, which is a possible constitutional amendment to eliminate the right of marriage for same-sex couples.

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
