14 Point Lead For Maryland Marriage

Press release from Maryland's marriage activists:
Marylanders for Marriage Equality today released a new poll showing voters approve of marriage for loving, committed gay and lesbian couples by a 14-point margin (54% to 40%). The poll was conducted by Hart Research last week. "We continue to have the momentum," said Josh Levin, campaign manager for Marylanders for Marriage Equality. "Voters are having conversations on marriage around the dinner table and are agreeing that people should be treated fairly." African-American voters, the survey noted, are virtually evenly split between supporters (44%) and opponents (45%) - a shift from just few months ago when opponents were up by nine points. The change is largely due to increased discussion of marriage equality following the endorsement of the issue by President Obama and the NAACP.
I remain worried.
