"Poll Bodes Well For Illinois Marriage Equality"

A new Public Policy Polling poll shows that 47 percent of Illinois voters support marriage equality, compared to 42 percent who oppose it. The Windy City Times points out that for voters under the age of 45, the difference spreads to 58-37. Minority groups also endorsed same-sex marriage by wide margins, including black voters (60-16) and Latinos (70-23). Illinois lawmakers could vote on marriage equality legislation as soon as January 2013.
