A lot of polls are showing this recently. And it matters. First, because it does in fact show that there's a trend in our favor. Second, the courts aren't immune from news, and trends, like this.

New Hampshire Tea Party Activists Don't See Harm From State Same-Sex Marriage Law
Wow! A video clip of Tea Party Activists that hasn't caused me any heartburn:
According to the person at Think Progress who went to Concord, New Hampshire to cover a Tax Day Tea Party sponsored by Americans for Prosperity, he could not find a single Tea Party activist who felt that "expanding marriage to gays and lesbians has undermined their relationships or in any way changed the state" when he asked them about the legalization of gay marriage in their state.

And on a related note (and cause for even more heartburn for poor ole Maggie), John over at AMERICAblog Gay has posted yet another reason to hope that the tide is turning for good on the issue of marriage equality - a lot of polls are now showing that more than half of all Americans now support marriage equality:
