The poll found that of the 702 registered voters questioned, 62 percent agreed with Superior Court Judge Mary Jacobson’s Sept. 27 decision to allow same-sex couples to get married on the ground that the current state law was a violation of a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling. Jacobson ruled that the marriages can begin on Oct. 21, but Gov. Chris Christie is appealing the ruling. The Christie administration is also seeking a stay on last month’s decision. According to the poll, 62 percent of respondents said they wanted the state to drop its appeal.
Will Governor Chris Christie listen? Not likely.
