“The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Sunday that the ballot measure — Amendment 2 — would amend the state constitution to bar gay marriage. A Sun Sentinel and Florida Times-Union poll reveals 53 percent of 600 likely voters said they supported the plan, far short of the 60 percent approval required for the constitutional amendment. The poll found 77 percent of likely voters favored equal rights for same-sex couples, while 15 percent were opposed and 8 percent were undecided.” [UPI]
