New NJ Poll: Support for Gay Marriage Declining; Garden Equality Calls Vote of the People "Corrupting"


CBS New York:

"...53 percent of those surveyed in the new Quinnipiac University poll said they would support a gay marriage law, and that is down 4 percent from a poll conducted in March.

67 percent said they agree with Gov. Chris Christie’s call for a ballot referendum on the issue.

...“I think the people should be given the right to vote,” the New Jersey Family Policy Council’s Len Deo told Putney. He’d prefer a vote on marriage, like he said southern states did.

He wants the question to be ”Should marriage remain as the union of one man and one woman?”

“That’s a bunch of hogwash,” said Garden State Equality’s Steven Goldstein. He said a public vote would just invite opponents to spend millions on advertising.

“[The advertising would] try to influence voters and corrupt the political system,” said Goldstein.
