More than half of New York voters back a measure to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry, according to a poll conducted by the Siena College Research Institute. The survey found 53% support a marriage-equality bill and 39% are against it. "For women and young voters it's a resounding 'yes.' Men and older voters are more closely divided and more likely to say 'no,' " said Siena New York Poll spokesman Steven Greenberg.
