New Jersey, USA: New Poll Says 62% Would Vote Yes on Marriage Equality

titleA new poll finds high levels of support for marriage equality in New Jersey, with 62% saying they would vote for it at the polls. Think Progress reports:

A new Rutgers-Eagleton Poll finds that an overwhelming number of New Jerseyans want to vote on the question of same-sex marriage so that they can approve it. According to the poll, 69 percent of respondents support a referendum, and 62 percent of respondents would vote yes for marriage equality while only 30 percent would oppose it. Indeed, 75 percent of those who support a referendum are supporters. Support continues to be highest among Democrats (72 percent) and independents (63 percent), and lowest among Republicans (40 percent) and self-identified conservatives (31 percent).

With support at levels this high, how much longer can Gov. Chris Christie continue to hold off for marriage equality in the state?
