As of yet, I have no further information about when New Jersey's legislature will take up a marriage equality bill, except that it is likely that it will be this year.
But we have some good news to report:
TRENTON — A new poll finds New Jersey voters support allowing gay couples to marry.
The Quinnipiac University Poll results are similar to a Monmouth University poll in February.
This poll finds 49 percent supporting gay marriage; 43 percent are opposed.
Women and whites tend to favor a gay marriage law, while blacks, men and those who attend religious services weekly are more likely to oppose it.
New Jersey lawmakers are likely to consider a gay marriage bill later this year. The state now offers same-sex couples civil unions, which offer legal benefits but not the title of marriage.
The poll of 2,222 registered New Jersey voters was conducted from April 14-20 and has a sampling error margin of plus or minus 2.1 percentage points.
I'm feeling very optimistic, especially in light of this:
AUGUSTA (NEWS CENTER) -- Recent polls have shown Maine voters almost evenly divided over the same sex marriage issue. That is not the case with the judiciary committee, as legislators endorsed the same sex marriage bill by a wide margin. [11-2]
