Eagleton Poll does not test intensity of feelings on marriage equality -- by 63 to 31 percent in Summer 2007 Zogby poll, New Jerseyans say they'd be fine with legislature's changing civil unions to marriage equality. By 72 to 21 percent in that poll, New Jerseyans say "nothing would happen" to legislators who vote for marriage equality

Wednesday, October 31, 2007 -- Today the Eagleton Institute of Politics at Rutgers released an independent statewide poll that shows New Jerseyans favor marriage equality 48 to 45 percent, essentially unchanged from the last Eagleton Poll a year ago. 1,002 adults were surveyed in the new poll, which has a margin of error of 3.1 percent.

"That more New Jerseyans favor marriage equality than oppose it, said Steven Goldstein, chair of Garden State Equality, "is fantastic news it in the heat of this election campaign. The right-wing has spent significant resources to make marriage equality a wedge issue in several legislative races. Today's Eagleton Poll makes clear that the right-wing's effort has fallen flat on its face.

"Today's numbers show New Jersey is ready for marriage equality and it's coming to New Jersey, whether right-wing extremists out of touch with New Jersey like it or not."

The Eagleton Poll did not ask New Jerseyans about their intensity of feelings on marriage equality. In August 2007, a statewide Zogby Poll asked:

“If public officials in New Jersey come to the conclusion that civil unions for gay couples have not worked to provide equality under the law, and that the way to fix the law is to give gay couples the same right to marry as heterosexual couples, would you be fine with that or would you be upset by that?”

63% responded “fine with that,” while only 31% responded “upset by that.”

The same Zogby Poll also asked:

“Which of the following do you think is most likely to happen to legislators if they were to allow gay couples to marry? Those legislators would not be reelected, or nothing because people care about other issues more.”

72% said nothing would happen to legislators, while only 21% said legislators would not be reelected.

TODAY Starts GLBT History Month!!!

About GLBT History Month

In the 1990s, teachers and community leaders believed a month should be dedicated to the celebration and teaching of GLBT history. They selected October because public schools are in session and existing traditions, such as Coming Out Day (October 11), occur then.

GLBT History Month was endorsed by GLAAD, HRC, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, and other national organizations. Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber declared October 1995 to be Lesbian and Gay History Month; and in July 1995, the National Education Association voted to support the concept. In 1996, the governors of Massachusetts and Connecticut and the mayors of Boston and Chicago also proclaimed October GLBT History Month.

In 2006, Equality Forum’s Board of Directors and National Board of Governors voted unanimously to coordinate GLBT History Month, modeling it on Black History Month and Women’s History Month.


The goals of GLBT History Month are to teach GLBT history, to provide role models, to build community and to highlight the GLBT community’s important national and international contributions.

Icon Selection Criteria

Thirty-one GLBT Icons were selected, one for each day of the month. Equality Forum solicited state, national and international leaders for nominations. The nominees comprised individuals, living or dead, who have distinguished themselves within their fields of endeavor, as national heroes, or in the GLBT civil rights movement. GLBT History Month 2007 Co-Chairs — the Rev. Nancy Wilson, Moderator, Metropolitan Community Churches (MCC), and Professor Kenji Yoshino, Yale Law School — recommended from the nominations the 31 Icons to the Equality Forum Board of Directors.
