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.”
