GRAPHIC: 43.6% Of America Has Marriage Equality; Another 21.5% Would Except For Judicial Stay

This is a useful graphic illustrating what I mentioned yesterday when discussing a stay on Indiana's marriage equality: there are numerous states that would have marriage equality but those judicial rulings are on hold due to the order of a court. It turns out that is about 21.5% of the U.S. population. Almost twice that number, 43.6% of the American populace lives in a jurisdiction with marriage equality. The rest of America (34.9%) lives where their ban on marriage equality is currently under legal challenge but has not been decided yet.

Any guesses on when marriage equality will hit 50% of the population? 100%? I think we'll be at more than 50% by the end of the year, but 100% won't happen until June 2015 at the earliest.
