New Jerseyans remain staunchly in favor of gay marriage, according to a new poll out today.
In a Quinnipiac University poll, likely voters say 61 -- 32 percent that Gov. Chris Christie should drop his appeal of a state judge's ruling that same-sex couples have the right to marry.
A majority of likely voters, 59 -- 33, also want the Democrat-controlled state Legislature to override the governor's veto of a bill allowing same-sex marriage.
"New Jersey likely voters support same-sex marriage any way they can get it. By almost 2-1, including a lot of Republicans, they want Gov. Christie to drop his appeal of a judge's ruling so same-sex couples can marry in the Garden State," said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. "And if Christie won't get out of the way, voters say, the State Legislature should push him aside by overriding his veto of legislation which passed both houses in February 2012."
