An unofficial web poll conducted by the
Star-Ledger found that a large majority of readers approve of
New Jersey's gay marriage law.
New Jersey became the 14th
state to allow gay couples to marry following a September 27 Superior
Court decision ordering the state to begin issuing marriage licenses
to gay couples as of October 21.
Republican Governor Chris Christie
appealed the ruling to the New Jersey Supreme Court but withdrew from
the fight after the court sided with the lower court's order in
refusing to delay the start of marriage equality in New Jersey.
“Are you happy New Jersey now allows
gay marriage?” the paper asked
readers on Thursday.
Of the 3,099 votes cast as of Thursday
at 2 PM, 2,255 (72.77%) were in the affirmative, while 745 (24.04%)
were in the negative. 99 respondents answered “I don't know.”
