Only 22% of respondents were 18-50 and thus likely to support SSM, whereas 69% were over the age of 50 and in the demographic most likely to oppose SSM! Perhaps if NOM had sampled outside of retirement communities they would have gotten a result more akin to the other surveys. There was also a huge margin of error . The results are not representative of the population!
