Maryland public opinion shifts in favor of same sex marriage

According to an article published by The Huffington Post, a recent poll by Marylanders for Equality shows a significant shift in public opinion supporting same sex marriage.

This is significant because Maryland recently passed a gay marriage law that goes into effect January 1, 2013 which opponents are trying to have overturned in a referendum vote later this year.

The poll shows a 12-point shift in favor of same sex marriage with 57% now saying they would vote to uphold the Maryland law.  According to the report “The shift can be explained ‘almost entirely’ by a change in black voters’ attitudes.”

The reason for that shift in attitude in my opinion may be summed up in one word, “Obama”.
