“No, not yet. It will need more time. The issue is becoming more acceptable, but we’re not quite there yet. I think voters will approve it in about three years, especially if Obama continues to be president. I believe strongly in marriage equality.”

“Maine has the best chance of passing it. New England tends to be more tolerant when it comes to marriage equality. And Maine is very close to Massachusetts, where same-sex marriage is firmly established. I’m optimistic that the state of Maine will lean towards fairness for all.”

“I’d place my bet on Washington state, if anywhere. My gut instinct is that people out West are more progressive on social issues. On the East Coast, religion and conservatism tend to dominate the discussion on that subject, so I don’t have much faith that voters will approve it there.”

“Probably not in Maryland. It’s a Southern state. Not that I have anything against Southern states, but they tend to be conservative. I have more confidence in Washington and Maine. They both have liberal towns that will organize enough voters in favor of marriage equality.”
