    Wow, this is a surprising and exciting number! Also Arizonans agree with marijuana use as well. But it’s hard to believe this poll because the state’s politics are so conservative and that doesn’t appear to be changing. Unfortunately because the state is locked up by Republicans it’s going to be hard to see equality pass in the state anytime soon.

    Yes, Francis, Arizona is locked into not only republican control but mormon republican control ever since Napolitano quit in the middle of her term for her shot at fame and left us with the witch. That being said, as a long time resident of Phoenix I do see a political shift happening and think there’s a real shot at Arizona falling into the blue column within the next two election cycles.
    The demographics are changing fast.

    A signature drive to repeal the constitutional ban has already been approved and must collect 250k valid signatures by July 2014 to put and end to Arizona’s discrimination in marriage. Jan Brewer nor her repugnicans cannot alter that.

    That’s great to hear, Mike! What is clear is major progress is being made, including in states considered conservative strongholds. Movement is being made throughout the country. Awesome to witness.

    Wow, I am a bit skeptical about this.. As a native Arizonan I agree with Mike that the demographics are changing and becoming more liberal. However, our state and (Maricopa) county governments are still ruled by the conservative nutcases (Arpaio, Brewer, Horne) and they would never allow gay marriage to become law. Arizona is notorious for government corruption because voters can’t see past immigration and anti-crime rhetoric. As long as you’re hard on immigrants and crime, ideology and leadership do not matter.

    People laughed at me when I said Arizona would be the first red state with marriage equality, but looking like I may end up being right. The state has a libertarian streak in it, not as socially conservative as other red states.
