PA: Marriage Equality Bill Introduced Has Majority Public Support

Yesterday openly gay Pennsylvania state legislator Brian Sims introduced a marriage equality bill. At the same time, a new poll was released showing that marriage equality has 54% support in the state:
In the latest Franklin & Marshall College poll, 54 percent of Pennsylvania residents said they support same-sex marriage. But at the same time, poll director Terry Madonna says, voters do not identify the issue as a priority:  
 “Given the health of the economy, given the other economic and fiscal concerns that voters have, I don’t think it’s likely to move center stage as one of those issues that will see a lot of pressure on the legislature in the short run.”
