NJ supports gay marriage

From an Austin blogger at Casual Soapbox we find that NJ has come to support gay marriage in greater numbers since 2003 (shown in parentheses):

Favors gay marriage 50% (43%)
Opposes gay marriage 44% (50%)
Having spent time in NJ recently I can say that the difference in attitude is palpable, and people in NJ and NYC aren't simply personally supportive but are actually quite outspoken. It's a change that I think the whole country is starting to experience, but obviously it's going to be slower in a state like Texas. Still, progress is nice.
