Some positive news from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer:
Washington voters appear poised to enact changes in social policy, legalizing same-sex marriage and possession of marijuana, that will be noticed across the country, according to a new SurveyUSA poll for KING/5 News.
The poll found Referendum 74, which would make Washington the seventh state to enact marriage equality, leading by a 55-40 percent margin with just 6 percent undecided. No state in America has ever voted in favor of same-sex marriage. The issue is also on the ballot in Maryland and Maine.
Republican Washington State Rep. Maureen Walsh, who gave an emotional speech for marriage equality on the floor of the Washington House last February, appears in the newest ad for Washington United for Marriage.
