Poll: Americans RSVP 'no' to both nups and bans
55% of Americans still oppose marriage equality for gay couples, yet an almost identical number (56%) are opposed to a federal ban on the concept. Additionally, the same poll respondents are, by a margin of 49%-45%, against banning same-sex nups on a state-level. Full poll results at link:

So unfortunately for us gays, we are still waiting to tip the scales of support for our unions. But unfortunately for our opponents, new people turn 18 every single day.
But until the day when younger folks completely replace backwards thinking: It is unquestionably encouraging that people already seem to be getting the message about what these so-called "protect marriage" initiatives are about, both on a local and national level. If the majority is going to continue their uncomfiness with throwing on a suit and "mazel tov"-ing our glass-breaking, it's at least good to know they seem ever more open with admitting they might be wrong. That's the first step.
