"POLL: Nearly Two-Thirds Of New Jersey Voters Approve Marriage Equality Ruling"
A new poll of New Jersey voters find that 62 percent agree with a judge’s recent decision that same-sex couples must be allowed to marry. Gov. Chris Christie (R) has appealed the decision and asking the New Jersey Supreme Court to stay it so that it does not take effect on October 21. The poll similarly found that 62 percent of voters believe the state should stop fighting against marriage equality, while only 29 percent support Christie’s appeal.
