A new poll finds that Ohioans are closely split when it comes to gay marriage.

A Quinnipiac University poll released Monday shows that 50 percent of Ohio voters support gay marriage while 44 percent are against it.

The survey also finds that Ohio voters under age 30 overwhelmingly back the idea while those 65 and older opposed it.

Gay marriage supporters are working to put the issue back on the Ohio ballot in November. There also have been recent lawsuits aimed at seeking the recognition of gay marriage in Ohio.

It was just 10 years ago that Ohio voters overwhelmingly approved a statewide ban on gay marriage.

The margin of error for the telephone survey of 1,370 registered voters is 3 percentage points.
