The Washington Post/ABC news took a poll asking “Do you think it should be legal or illegal for gay and lesbian couples to get married?” Surely enough, the number of people who replied that gay marriage should be legal increased by 17 percent making it now 53%!
According to 365Gaynews.com the “results indicate increased support from men, college-educated whites, political independents and participates who are not religious-affiliated.”
The poll was randomly conducted by phone from March 10 to 13 and sampled 1,005 adults.

California‘s Attorney General, Kamala Harris, requested Tuesday to an appeals court to consider the constitutionality of California’s gay marriage ban after a week before the Obama administration said it would no longer defend a federal law that prohibits the U.S. from recognizing gay unions.
The two action, together are a blow to Proposition 8, opponents to gay marriage, and the voter-approved initiative that banned the unions in California in 2008.
In a letter to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Harris joined the lawyers for two same-sex couples and the city of San Francisco in seeking the resumption of gay marriages in California. The unions were put on hold while Proposition 8’s sponsors appeal a trial judge’s ruling striking down the ban.
So what do you think?? Is California indeed going to release its ban on gay marriage?
