Poll: ♪ Start spreading the [cash to pro-equality challengers] ♪

by Jeremy Hooper

New-York-gay-equalityA new Siena poll indicates that when it comes to the state Senate failing to support equality, more New Yorkers are pissed than they are pleased:

Forty-seven percent of voters were disappointed that the Senate rejected the bill to legalize same sex marriages in New York, compared to 41 percent who were pleased by the Senate’s vote. Liberals, young voters, Democrats and Jewish voters were most disappointed. Conservatives, Republicans, older, and African American voters were most pleased with the Senate vote. In August, 50 percent of voters told Siena that they supported the Senate passing the same sex marriage bill, with 44 percent then opposing Senate passage.

Which should be an especially troubling sign to those eight Democrats who went the anti-gay way. Even more so for those who will face primary opponents, as NY primary elections are famously filled with the state's more progressive voters.

Of course 47+ 41 only equal's 88%. Here's sincerely hoping that the other 12% were too sickened by the Senate's unprincipled fumble that they couldn't even muster an answer!
