What this probably means is that most New Jerseyans are against gay marriage. Don't forget how the California polls right up to the election showed most against Prop 8, yet it passed. Polls tend to understate opposition to same-sex marriage so it's quite likely that at least a narrow majority of New Jerseyans are against it.

One of the major political parties in this country favors sod/om/y, gay marriage, and abortion. That party currently dominates New Jersey's state government. Happily, an unpopular governor, a member of that party, is facing re-election this year, as is the entire legislature. Will the gutless wonders of New Jersey sink themselves with gay marriage? Unlike the voters of many states, New Jersey voters cannot propose amendments to the State Consitution. Amendments must originate in the legislature, the finest money can buy. Are the legislators brave enough to propose an amendment to placate less than 2% of the population, while simultaneously alienating a sizeable number of voters in a close election?

Man, people make me sick. The public comes up with a 6 point spread in favor of giving me the same rights everyone else has, and somehow this turns into New Jersey's legislature being a pile of gutless dweebs and the pollsters all being horribly wrong.
You know if the numbers were reversed you'd be celebrating the glory of the sample's gay-hating righteousness. What a bunch of sore poll losers.
