    Public Policy Polling surveys the people of Maryland and finds a 57-37 lead for approval of the new gay marriage law. Guess why?


    The movement over the last two months can be explained almost entirely by a major shift in opinion about same-sex marriage among black voters.

    Previously 56 percent said they would vote against the new law with only 39 percent planning to uphold it. Those numbers have now almost completely flipped, with 55 percent of African Americans planning to vote for the law and only 36 percent now opposed.

    Glory hallelujah. Nanoseconds after hearing that the President had come out in favor of same-sex marriage, I said, I'll bet this is going to change the minds of a lot of black folk.
