For the first time in a nationwide survey, more Americans say they support gay marriage (49%) than oppose it (46%), according to the latest Washington Post/ABC poll. That 49% supporting gay marriage, in fact, is a significant jump from 2004, when the Post/ABC poll found just 32% in favor. This surge within the past month suggests that any backlash against the recent moves across the country to legalize gay marriage has yet to emerge. Also in the new survey, a majority of Americans (53%) believe that their state should recognize gay marriages from other states. Other recent polls have shown a similar increase in support for gay unions nationwide. The New York Times/CBS News poll released this week showed 42% of Americans supporting gay marriage -- the highest number ever recorded in that poll. This week's Quinnipiac poll, which found a majority (55%) against gay marriage, also showed 57% of Americans support civil unions.
Up to bat now are Maine and New Hampshire after passing gay marriage through their legislatures.New York is on deck..

That's some progress. Support for gay marriage will likely keep going up in the future.I wonder what all the bigots who cry about "activist judges" think about this.

People at my work are strongly against it. In fact, I found this at work. Shit's funny. I'm not against it, anyone should be able to marry who they want to love. The people against it are fucking retarded for saying "What's next, marrying animals??"fucking retarded.

This is a joke. The idea that anyone gives a fuck about this is a joke. It's a cpomplete distraction from real issues. That's why the media hypes it up, to distract from real issues.

Still boggles my mind that Iowa of all places legalized gay marriage before California. Seems completely backwards.BuckFarack187;367036 wrote:

Don't be such a dick, Buck. Maybe this is'nt a real issue to you but for a lot of people, such as Burr, it is.
