Radio Smart Talk for Friday, May 17:
Pennsylvania is changing right before our eyes. So says Franklin and Marshall College political analyst Dr. G. Terry Madonna.
Madonna and Dr. Michael Young, another longtime analyst, write in their latest Politically Uncorrected column that this month's statewide F and M poll shows shifting attitudes on several social issues.
The poll indicates 54% favor same sex marriage, 89% support universal background checks for all gun sales, and while 54% oppose legalizing marijuana for recreational use, the opposition is down from 72% seven years ago.
Madonna says the cultural change is being led by younger Pennsylvanians.
Madonna will be on Friday's Radio Smart Talk to explain.
