‘Marriage Equality’ Scores 9 Points Higher Than ‘Same-Sex Marriage’

A poll of New Jersey voters found that 52 percent support legalizing “same-sex marriage,” but 61 percent support “marriage equality.” It’s important to note that marriage equality has a strong majority of support either way, but the distinction between the responses is telling. Allowing same-sex couples to marry is a matter of equality, and making sure voters understand that is paramount to winning their support.
