WashPost: Same-sex marriage

Robert McCartney on why the difference between strong white support for same-sex marriage in the District vs. the rest of the nation...
Why the difference? The District's white population is more secular, liberal and better-educated than the rest of the country. Some surveys have suggested that educational level is the most reliable predictor of attitudes on same-sex marriage, with more-educated people being more likely to support it.
Perhaps this is a good indicator that our education system is broken?   Then again, maybe it says more about religious America, that religious affiliation isn't a more reliable predictor?  Then again, maybe someone's just stretched some numbers to have a fancy way of saying, "you're either with us or you're dumb"?
