Sixty-two percent of Tennesseans oppose “allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry legally” but almost as strong a majority oppose making it illegal to talk about homosexuality in school classrooms at lower grade levels, according to a Middle Tennessee State University poll. Only 28 percent of those polled said they were in favor of gay marriage, with 62 percent opposed and the rest either undecided or refusing to answer. The result compares to 43 percent opposition in some national polls and 56 percent opposition in other Southern states.
