    The general opinion of correspondents on this site is that should matters concerning human rights be subjected to a public vote? Even if most people disapprove of gay marriage there should be no reason why those who wish to enter into a same-sex marriage should be denied the right to do so.
    Interestingly some of the recent referendums concerning gay marriage were also constitutional ones with some states making same sex marriage ‘unconstitutional’ via a simple majority or 50%+1 vote. Surely if it is a constitutional matter, whether it is concerning a state or the whole of the USA, then a two-thirds majority should be required to amend it. Another good reason for the Supreme Court to strike down California’s Proposition 8. It is difficult to amend the US Constitution but individual state constitutions are not worth the paper they are written on if they could be amended on a whim.

      I think it’s just more about working with what you got at the time… and these polls are good to use, of course the opposition can do the same in Texas and the rest of the south.

  2. Great – and surprising – news that Ohio is turning the corner. Who knew!
