A Majority Has the Authority!

A new poll shows that 51% of Americans support recognizing gay marriage in the U.S.A . Now there is no reason that more states should allow Gay Marriage. In 2008 only 44% supported recognizing gay marriage. There will still be problems with legalizing gay marriage in the U.S. Democrats and Independents are  in favor of it.While Republicans are very much against it.

More than six in 10 Democrats support same sex marriage, joined by more than half of independents, but seven in 10 Republicans are against it," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.
 This poll means if a state wide referendum was done in every state it could be possible that liberal leaning states that currently don't have Gay marriage would have the majority needed to pass it. This means states like Rhode Island, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, California, Oregon, Washington, Hawaii, Maine should have a relatively easy time passing the referendum. That means we can add 6 with another 9 very soon. I think all 50 states will eventually pass Gay marriage it is just a matter of time.

This poll also means that for the future it will be more politically popular to support Gay marriage, and some Republicans are following along. In fact New York won't have been able to pass the bill if it weren't for a few Republicans in the legislature, but currently no Republican candidate for president supports Gay marriage only Huntsman support Civil unions which still doesn't give equal rights to Gay people.
