AP: 53% support equality; future moving one decided direction

by Jeremy Hooper

While the National Organization For Marriage tries to spin last night's NY-9 election as some sort of referendum on marriage, here's a good report from the Associated Press about marriage equality, its growing support, and why NOM's faith-based rhetoric will inevitably suffer the more sustainable loss (one that won't be redistricted out of play):

Fifty-three percent of the 1,000 adults surveyed believe the government should give legal recognition to marriages between couples of the same sex, about the same as last year, according to the nationwide telephone poll by The Associated Press and the National Constitution Center. Forty-four percent were opposed.
People are similarly conflicted over what, if anything, the government should do about the issue.

NOM spent $75,000 to defeat David Weprin. Big deal. If they had successfully financed a time machine, then there'd be need for worry.
