Note: I’m slowly getting back into posting here, but will not be doing snark or angry polemic. I’m not sure where that’s going to take things, but at least I’ll feel clean at the end of the day.
Could New Jersey come around some day (soon)? It’s going to be strange living in Hoboken where you can’t get married, and working in Manhattan where you can.
Gay marriage is not likely to become legal in New Jersey as long as Chris Christie is running things, but according to a recent poll, more New Jersey voters would support marriage equality than would not.
The PPP poll surveyed 480 voters in mid-July, who were asked “do you think same-sex marriage should be legal or illegal?” 47% answered “legal,” 42% said “illegal,” and 11% said they weren’t sure.
When phrased in a different way, the gap between supporters of same-sex marriage and opponents was smaller, though the majority still came out in favor of it. “Which of the following best describes your opinion on gay marriage,” the poll asked. “Gay couples should be allowed to legally marry, or gay couples should be allowed to form civil unions but not legally marry, or there should be no legal recognition of a gay couple’s relationship?”
