CA: New Poll Shows 59% Now Support Marriage Equality
Marriage Equality USA is thrilled that Californians now support the freedom to marry for lesbian and gay couples by a 59% - 34% margin, according to a new California Field Poll released today. "Today's poll results mark a turning point in public opinion in favor of the freedom to marry for all loving, committed same-sex couples in California," said John Lewis, Marriage Equality USA's Legal Director.

"Coupled with the Ninth Circuit's opinion striking down Proposition 8 earlier this month and legislative victories in the states of Washington, New Jersey, and Maryland, the momentum in favor of marriage equality has never been stronger," said Lewis.

However, despite a substantial majority of Californians now in favor of marriage equality, loving, committed same-sex couples are still prohibited from marrying because the Ninth Circuit's decision invalidating Proposition 8 is currently stayed as the opponents of equality attempt to appeal it further.
