A new Kean University/NJ Speaks poll found that a majority of New Jersey’s likely voters (57 percent) supports a public referendum on allowing same-sex couples to marry, while 32 percent oppose such a measure. Still, a plurality of those voters do back marriage equality, with 48 percent in favor and 37 percent opposed. Though the legislature is advancing a same-sex marriage bill, Gov. Chris Christie (R) stands by his promise to veto and is urging legislators to put the question to a referendum.
