Researchers paint with a very broad brush

In the May 24 Post-Bulletin, Carleton College political science professor Steven Schier made an insulting statement about the good people of Rochester. He said that Rochester will be a battleground city in the fight concerning the marriage amendment, "because the people who want to defeat the amendment undoubtedly know that more highly educated, high-income individuals are more likely to favor defeat of the amendment, and Rochester has a lot of those."

Well, Mr. Schier, where do you and the defeatists get your research from? I think there are many who agree, from all walks of life, incomes, social status, and otherwise, that the marriage amendment opinion cannot possibly be linked to these things, and any minuscule finding based on a very few people's opinions is certainly skewed.

See you at the polls!
