Rings we got last year, now just waiting for a license.
The dying gasps of the anti-marriage forces can be heard loudly in New York, where a suit has already been filed to overturn the marriage equality law (it will certainly fail) and annul all the marriages taking place here. And now a new poll finds that attitudes are shifting rapidly in equality’s favor, even among seniors, a group that has been reliably opposed.
In a new polling memo intended to shape politicians’ decisions on the question of same-sex marriage, the top pollsters for Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama jointly argue that support for same-sex marriage is increasingly safe political ground and will in future years begin to “dominate” the political landscape.
The pollsters, Republican Jan van Lohuizen and Democrat Joel Benenson, argue in their memo, which can be read in full here, that support for same-sex marriage is increasing at an accelerating rate and that the shift is driven by a politically crucial group, independents. They are expected to unveil the memo, which was commissioned by the group Freedom to Marry and shared exclusively with POLITICO, at a press conference at the National Press Club today.
