Responding to a poll that indicates most Rhode Island voters believe the same-sex marriage issue should be decided by voters, Rhode Islanders United for Marriage countered Tuesday that the issue involves human and civil rights and should therefore be decided by lawmakers. The group also noted that the poll, sponsored by the National Organization for Marriage's Rhode Island chapter, did not ask voters if they support same-sex marriage. Devin Driscoll, communications director for Rhode Islanders United for Marriage, said that's because "they already know the answer is a resounding yes."
