Poll: NYers fairly evenly split on fair & even concept
A new Siena College survey of 620 registered New York voters found that a majority of the Empire State's Democrats, voters under 55, residents of NYC, and Jewish voters are in favor of legalizing gay marriage, while a majority of Republicans, suburbanites, independent voters, Catholics, Protestants, and voters over 55 are still opposed. It all breaks down to 43% of New Yorkers overall supporting marriage equality, and 47% opposing (with 10% apparently unable to form a damn opinion).
Pretty close. But what's it gonna take for us to tip the scales in our direction? Well, clearly we need to start holding elections only in NYC on Christmas Day. Oh, and if we could make both a familiarity with Michael Moore's canon of work and a non-familiarity with black-and-white television requirements for state legislators, that would help too.
Or wait, on second thought: How's about everyone simply pull their heads out of their arses and wise up to the fact that marriage equality is fair, right, and just! This isn't a two-sided debate in which we can "agree to disagree." It is a fight between right and wrong, with one side already the clear winner (with future success a guaranteed)!
That 10% that is "undecided"? Well, guess what: Decency has already decided for you!
And as for the 47% of NYers who are staunchly, proudly standing in opposition to equality and who say they will never change their mind on this issue: Have you kids ever considered what Bermuda has to offer?
**Ed. note: That last line is a joke. We don't want anyone leaving their home state, just their non-accepting one.
