Poll: 62 Percent of NJ Voters Would Approve Marriage Equality
A new Rutgers-Eagleton poll came out yesterday and brings good news for marriage equality in New Jersey:
A proposal to place the question of same-sex marriage on the fall ballot
also gets broad support; voters want a chance to decide by a 68 percent
to 25 percent margin. Given a chance, New Jersey seems likely to become
the latest state to legalize same-sex marriage: 62 percent would vote
yes on the question, 30 percent would vote no, while 8 percent are
unsure. This represents the highest level of support for gay marriage
ever recorded in a Rutgers-Eagleton Poll.
Asked about the upcoming legislative races, voters are at least 15 points more likely to support Democrats than Republicans for the General Assembly and state Senate. This is despite Christie’s popularity and huge re-election lead over Democratic state Sen. Barbara Buono. Results of this ballot test have changed little since the last Rutgers-Eagleton Poll, taken in February.
