Walter Olson on the GOP and same-sex marriage

Important and hopeful observations from Walter Olson:

Why Many GOPers Quietly Backed Maryland Question 6 — Yes, Democratic voters did tend to favor the history-making same-sex marriage law, and Republicans did tend to oppose it. But that tends to conceal a more interesting story.

  • Interesting look at the vote for marriage equality and political party. I'm glad Question 6 won, but I wish it had won by a bigger margin.

  • It was uncomfortably close for sure.
