backlash: 38-24

via andrew sullivan:
New York's state senate continues the recent backlash against recent expansion of marriage equality. The vote against marriage equality was more lopsided than many had hoped for. Not a single Republican voted for the bill, despite intense lobbying. The vote in the Assembly was 88 - 51 in favor of civil equality.
and this despite what a marist poll out today reveals:
Where do New York State registered voters stand on this controversial issue? A slim majority — 51% — favor legalizing same-sex marriage. 42% oppose it.
des moines, here i come.
