New Jersey’s View on Gay Marriage is Rapidly Changing – Has Yours? [POLL]
The latest poll numbers are in on gay marriage in the Garden State and it’s pretty obvious that sooner or later it will be here. According to a Fairleigh Dickinson University-Public Mind poll, 62% say they support the recent court decision that requires New Jersey to start issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The same percentage says we should stop all legal action fighting same sex marriage here.
This has been the single fastest evolving public opinion on a social issue in history. Even just ten years ago, the young demos, 18-32 were around 51% compared to 70% in favor today. Even older demos, those over 65, were at 13% in favor ten years ago compared to 31% today.
I started wondering about the reason for the shift. If you once felt same sex marriage was wrong but now support it, what was it that changed your mind? Again, please keep in mind this poll is only for those who have changed their opinion over time.
