New Jersey voters still split on gay marriage


The Associated Press reports:

 A new poll finds about half of New Jersey voters support allowing gay couples to marry.

The Quinnipiac University Poll results are similar to a Monmouth University poll in

The latest poll finds 49 percent support gay marriage while 43 percent are opposed. Women and whites tend
to favor a gay marriage law, while blacks, men and those who attend religious services weekly are more
likely to oppose it.

 New Jersey lawmakers are likely to consider a gay marriage bill later this year. The state now offers
same-sex couples civil unions, which offer legal benefits but not the title of marriage.

The poll of 2,222 registered New Jersey voters was conducted from April 14-20 and has a sampling
error margin of plus or minus 2.1 percentage points.
