A Majority For Marriage In California

It' the third poll in a row that shows that Californians now back marriage equality for gay couples.

We also see the generational shift more starkly than ever:

The poll also showed a huge variation by age, with registered voters younger than 30 supporting same-sex marriage by roughly 3 to 1, while a majority of those 64 and older were opposed.
