Evan Wolfson said differing attitudes about marriage equality could be because the younger respondents grew up in a time of greater visibility and open discussion of gays and lesbians. "The key to changing hearts is getting people to hear from and about real people," he said, "rather than approach it in the hypothetical or with just scary rhetoric or abstractions. That's why getting gay and non-gay people to talk about why marriage matters for real couples and kids, reaching out to the people around us and asking them for their support is so crucial."
