According to a Fox News poll released Wednesday, 37 percent of voters believe gays and lesbians should be allowed to get married legally. While that’s unchanged from 2010, when the question was most recently asked, it’s nearly double the 20 percent who felt that way in March 2004, the first time it was asked.

On the other hand, the poll finds 25 percent think there should be no legal recognition given to gay and lesbian relationships, down from 28 percent in 2010 and a high of 40 percent in 2004.
The remaining one third (33 percent) think same-sex couples should be allowed a legal partnership similar to but not called marriage. While that number has bounced around a bit over the years, 33 percent also favored this middle-ground position in 2004.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney favors a constitutional amendment defining marriage as being between a man and a woman.
Thirty-eight percent of American voters agree with him, while 53 percent oppose such an amendment.
Fox News poll: Majority opposes gay marriage, doesn't want constitutional amendment | Fox News
Something winston I believe will change as the courts increasingly frustrate the will of the people.
*15 states saying "We don't like teh gayz."
*12 states saying, "we don't like teh gayz, but we like other things a lot less."
*8 states saying, "I'm not inviting gays to my birthday party, but really I can't be arsed to care."
Conservative also conveniently ignored the part of his own site that says "In the last eight years, every state has increased in its support for marriage..." which sort of undermines the idea of these as states that will eternally hold the fort against gay marriage.

It's a failure on our part, as the People, to maintain our Constitution rather than allow the courts to do it extra-constitutionally.At least four amendments (the Seventeenth, Twenty-First, Twenty-Second, and Twenty-Fifth Amendments) have been identified as being proposed by Congress at least partly in response to the threat of an Article V convention.[3
