For First Time, 50 Percent of Californians Favor Same-sex Marriage

Among all Californians, residents are more likely to favor (50%) than oppose (45%) same-sex marriage for the first time in the PPIC Statewide Surveys. Support among all adults has never surpassed 45 percent since the question was first asked in January 2000. There are clear partisan divisions: majorities of Democrats (64%) and independents (55%) are in favor, and most Republicans (67%) are opposed.

There is much more consensus on the issue of gays and lesbians in the military. In the wake of Obama’s announcement that he would like to repeal the federal "don’t ask, don’t’ tell” policy passed in 1993, 75 percent of Californians say that gays and lesbians should be allowed to serve openly in the military.

Did they also poll the Mexicans who will soon be granted amnesty?

More bullshit, we just voted down same sex marriage. More of the media telling the people what they think.

Yes, lets have government and special interests redefine the meaning of all words.

You voted FOR Segregation last year and barely made a majority....a few years before that you voted FOR Segregation (Prop 22) and had over 60%....check out the trend. There are over 18,000 of us married gay couples walking around and the world is NOT coming to an end.

Your segregationist ideas of marriage are, tho. :clap2::clap2::clap2:
