This is HUGE. On the day of the US Supreme Court hearing on Prop 8, Think Progress reports that an astonishing 67% in California now support marriage equality:
As the Supreme Court hears oral arguments today on California’s Proposition 8 banning same-sex marriage, a new SurveyUSA poll shows that 67 percent of Californians believe same-sex couples deserve the legal benefits of marriage. Only 30 percent believe those benefits should be limited to “a man and a woman.” Conservatives have argued that if the Court rules against Prop 8, it will somehow invalidate the will of the voters who supported the ballot initiative.
In related news, 25 California mayors signed a letter urging the Court to overturn Prop 8. Queerty reports:
The mayors of Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento, Oakland, West Hollywood and 20 other cities in California signed a letter urging the Supreme Court to rule the state’s ban on same-sex marriage, Proposition 8, unconstitutional.
One way or another, Prop 8 is going down.
