    I'm going to trust that America will withstand this onslaught of moral decay.

    America will be fine once gay people have all of the rights that straight people have all over the USA, but some of the people in the far-right evangelical/Mormon group might have a problem dealing with the new reality that's right around the corner, time-wise.

    I really don't think that anyone on our current Supreme Court will vote against equal rights for all Americans. Who would want historians to write that about them?

    That's why I chose the 0-5 year option in the poll. This is going to happen a lot sooner than a lot of people think.

    Wait and see.

    That's the way that I see it also. Few people on the right are going to put their political careers on the chopping block by launching a foredoomed attack on gay rights.

    Those who do will live to regret that decision.

    I voted 5-10 years. I think the majority of states will probably allow gay marriage in 5, but there will be a few holdouts who will fight it tooth and nail until they finally fall but that will take some time. By 2025, I think 100% of the states will respect marriage equality.

    Correct.

    Polls show that support for gay marriage is growing and will be much stronger in the future.

    Those who oppose this will lose.

    Well, last year I probably wouldn't have said this, but right now I'm inclined to believe that by 2020 (That's 7 years from now.) gay marriage will be a reality everywhere in the USA.

    I don't see any reason why that can't happen.

    Attitudes have changed, and are changing rapidly. I don't believe that the religious right has enough strength to stop this.

    Within 5 years. The courts seem to be going more and more that way in showing support for this.
