New poll shows absurdity of anti-gay marriage laws

Public Policy Polling has an interesting poll out on Vermont that brings home once again how absurd the anti-gay marriage crusaders are (and will be viewed in a few decades when all of the states finally get around to making gay marriage a right). 

This is from the post:

“Gay marriage has been legal in Vermont for almost 2 years now and most voters in the state say it’s had no impact on their lives. 60% say it’s been a non factor for them personally to 22% who say it’d had a positive effect on them and 18% who say it’s had a negative one.

A strong majority of voters in the state- 58%- are glad that same sex marriage is legal to only 33% opposed. And even among those who remain opposed 55% admit that its legalization has had no effect on their lives.

When you add civil unions to the equation 79% of voters support some form of legal recognition for gay couples- 55% preferring marriage and 24% civil unions- with only 18% opposing any sorts of rights. Even 56% of Republicans support either gay marriage or civil unions.”
