As less states find fault, polls vault

by Jeremy Hooper

Q. Why is every single state marriage victory good for gays across the entire country?

A. Because the changed hearts and minds extend well beyond the state lines. This from CBS News:

Forty-two percent of Americans now say same sex couples should be allowed to legally marry, a new CBS News/New York Times poll finds. That's up nine points from last month, when 33 percent supported legalizing same sex marriage.

Support for same sex marriage is now at its highest point since CBS News starting asking about it in 2004.

One month. Nine points. Hell, at this rate we'll be toasting our rural Alabama friends' happy nups even before the makers of those New Years Eve novelty eyeglasses show us how they'll accommodate a year that only has one zero!

Now if we could just get that one statistically-insignificant-yet-socially-HUGE American to come around...

Picture 29-16

...we'd be all good and "yes we can"-y.

Your thoughts

Don't expect him to officially change his position at least until he gets re-elected (if).
