Re: Last post, here’s a chart showing gay marriage’s popularity by state and over time. Acceptance of it has grown since 1994 in 49 of the 50 states. Notice the map’s legend (the box) says that the little dots and dashes tell you when/whether each state legalized same-sex marriage. Note that 5 of the 6 states that have done so are among the states where it is most popular. For this reason alone I believe that the Supremes will find some way to overturn Walker and go back to the status quo ante. It would just cause too much of a firestorm.
