How the Gay Marriage Canvassing Study Fell Apart

It is rare for people to change their minds on emotionally charged political issues like gun control, climate change, abortion and gay marriage. So when a study that came out last year found that you reverse opinions on gay marriage in a matter of minutes during face-to face encounters, it got a lot of attention. Now, it turns out that key data in that study was faked and one of the study’s co-authors, scientist Donald Green of Columbia, University has retracted it.
