Marriage Activists Polling in GOP State Senate Districts


This week in New York, Sean Kennedy does the math on what marriage-equality supporters need to do to ensure the passage of Governor Paterson’s bill in the State Senate. Meanwhile, in today’s Daily News, Elizabeth Benjamin reports that activists have done polling in moderate districts to prove to those GOP senators that voting for the bill won’t be political suicide. In four such districts in Long Island, voters prefer marriage equality 52 to 42 percent. [NYM, NYDN]
