Briefly: Poll finds wide support for Conn. constitutional convention

A recent University of Connecticut poll found that 50 percent of Connecticut voters support a constitutional convention to address several state issues, including citizen initiatives, eminent domain and the recent state Supreme Court decision that legalized gay marriage. The poll found 39 percent of voters opposed a convention, with 11 percent undecided. Sponsored by the Hartford Courant, the poll surveyed 502 likely voters from Oct. 18-22. The poll found that 55 percent of voters oppose using the convention to define marriage as only between a man and a woman, versus 41 percent in support.
