Poll finds more than half in Sussex County support gay marriage

There are 3 comments on the www.njherald.com story from Jan 29, 2012, titled Poll finds more than half in Sussex County support gay marriage. In it, www.njherald.com reports that:

Rita-Ann Schmick, of Vernon, is a Republican who voted for Gov. Chris Christie, yet she's a proud supporter of legalizing gay marriage in New Jersey.

Schmick's brother — celebrity chef and "Next Food Network" finalist Paul McCullough — is gay and lives in Los Angeles. He and his partner, Jeremy, are among 18,000 gay couples who obtained marriage licenses prior to a 2008 referendum banning gay marriage in California.

Schmick, 46, is married with five children. She said she totally supports her brother's marriage.

"It's an amazing thing. I have children and I've never said, ‘Oh, Uncle Paul's gay.' It just kind of clicks. They just kind of get it," Schmick said.

Schmick was among 529 Sussex County residents questioned in November for "The Pulse of Sussex County," a periodic survey administered by Sussex County Community College in partnership with the New Jersey Herald.

The questions covered a wide range of topics, from commuting to income and housing, but the 15th question — "Do you support same same-sex marriage" — was the most topical and timely.

More than 58 percent of respondents said they supported same-sex marriage, a perhaps-unexpected outcome for a region generally perceived as socially conservative.

It only takes a select 10% of the electorate to accomplish anything.
