Garden State Support for Marriage Equality Reaches All-Time High

New Jersey, Marriage equality, Same-sex marriageGreat news from New Jersey last week – a new poll shows that a majority of state voters support marriage equality!

Support for marriage equality is 52 to 42 percent, which is the first time support tops 50 percent. This is an increase of more than 10 percentage points from when the same question was asked of voters in 2006.

The Quinnipiac University poll was released as efforts are ramping up to pass marriage equality legislation in New Jersey.

Even with broad legislative and public support, advocates have to keep up pressure on legislators and Governor Chris Christie - who has previously opposed marriage equality.
