Majority of Californians Back Marriage Rights

Good News from CA! According to a new Field Poll survey, a Majority of Californians Back Marriage Rights for Gay Couples.

The Field Poll survey firm found 51 percent of voters oppose the measure, which proposes an amendment to the state's constitution recognizing marriage as only between a man and woman, while 42 percent were in favor.

Californians will vote on the initiative, which requires a simple majority to become law, while casting ballots in November's presidential and congressional elections.

The survey results follow a decision Wednesday by the state's high court to permit the measure, Proposition 8, to appear on the ballot.
