ABC News/WaPo poll: Americans support pro-equality SCOTUS rulings (and oppose VRA one)!

by Jeremy Hooper

More evidence of our inevitability:

The split on marriage is as sadly partisan as you'd expect. Democrats and Independents support both the Prop 8 and DOMA rulings by huge percentages (in the 60%+ range) and Republicans the opposite. There's also the expected demographic split, with 18–40 breaking pro-equality in a major way, and then the support dropping off as you get in the 60+ age range.

Long story short: We are winning and will continue to do so. Unfortunately, that short story will be needlessly elongated, so we must remain committed and vigilant!
