Same-sex marriage and the South

… The US supreme court has, for now, left it up to states to determine whether or not marriage should be legal. While legalising gay marriage is becoming the majority opinion across the US, state polling indicates that marriage equality is far from becoming the law in every state. Surveys conducted over the past few years in a number of southern states have found that these states were not only less likely to support gay marriage than the rest of the country, but their rate of change was slower as well.
