Field Poll: Majority Now Favors Gay Marriage

Hey, looky here! According to the latest Field Poll, a majority of Californians now support gay marriage, and oppose amending the state constitution to ban it! Support for gay marriage was strongest in the Bay Area, at 68 percent. Meanwhile, only 38 percent of Central Valley residents supported homosexual unions. According to the Chron, Field Poll director Mark DiCamillo surmised that the state Supreme Court’s recent ruling may have swayed voters that were ambivalent about the issue, by casting it in terms of equal treatment under the law. Makes this November even more interesting, if that were possible.
