Today, an ABC poll comes saying 49% support equal marriage. Interesting. I think we can safely say that we are on the way to actual support for equal marriage, and we are likely well into the “support for some recognition” territory.
Yet, I have a problem with the question that was asked in the ABC poll:
On another subject, do you think it should be legal or illegal for gay and lesbian/homosexual couples to get married? Do you feel that way strongly or somewhat?
In short: they were given two options, no in between. I wonder how the numbers would break down if civil unions/domestic partnerships were included? I’m still optimistic though, especially since 53% believed that marriages from another state should be recognized in their own.
Things are looking up :-).
