The New York Times notes today (my emphasis):
It will take a Supreme Court ruling to make marriage equality the law of the land.With the focus on number of states (18 where it's legal, 7 more judges have struck down their bans, and 3 more than have been told they must recognize out-of-state marriages) it's easy to lose track of the people. From 16% to 44%, in a year and a half.
But with this week’s developments, 44 percent of Americans now live in a place where same-sex marriage is allowed, up from 16 percent less than 18 months ago.
That's progress. And it's heartening.
