    Maryland residents are the most affluent of any state and among top 3 most educated. Even with a strong religious megachurch block in Prince George, marriage equality will be upheld. Maryland will be the first!

    @KirkR: Well let’s hope it ties with Maine for first place, as Washington finishes second/third (due to time zone differences).

    @KirkR: Maine and Washington maybe. But Maryland, no way let’s hope i’m wrong but i do not believe Maryland with nearly 30% african-americans will pass gay marrige. They will knock it down big time that’s my prediction.
