A Quinnipiac poll in New Jersey finds 60% of residents support allowing same-sex couples to marry, with 69% of Democrats and 39% of Republicans in favor. Among residents 18 to 34 years old, 83% support marriage equality, the poll found. In Virginia, a separate poll finds about 55% of voters think gays and lesbians should be allowed to marry. "There is a quiet transformation taking place in the heart of the South," said Dan Rafter, associate director of communications at the Human Rights Campaign, which released the Virginia poll. The poll was conducted by a bipartisan team of pollsters.
