It's great to see Arizonans support gay marriage. Now, if they would just get rid of the death penalty.

Some of the underlying results of your polling on gay marriage seem odd and in at least one case, makes no sense. For example, there is only a 3% spread against SSM for 65+. In 2012, you found a 9% spread. I am familiar with all of your state polls going back years and I don't think I have ever seen a 3-point spread among 65+.

For 18-29, you find only 51% supporting SSM, a 6 percent drop from 2012. While that is unexpected, since no other poll from PPP or any other polling outfit has shown a drop in young support for SSM since 2012, I wouldn't discount it on that basis alone. But what really makes no sense is that when you ask the 3-option question (which logically should draw some SSM supporters away in favor of the civil unions option), you get 55% support for SSM among 18-29s - a 4% increase in support. I cannot see how 51% of 18-29s support SSM on the 2-option question, but 55% support it when given 3 options.

I wonder if the introduction of the internet into your polling method explains some of this.

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?"
