I saw a link to this poll on Daily Kos. Two important things jump out right away. First, support for equal rights for marriage among Republicans has tripled from 6% to 18% in the last month! Second, support for marriage equality is now the position of a plurality voters overall.

This does not look like the polls I'd expect to see prior to a massive backlash. It's interesting that the numbers really didn't shift from the summer of 08 to March of 09. In other words, this isn't an Obama effect or a backlash against the Prop 8 campaign's transparent bigotry. Rather I think this is the response to the Iowa Supreme Court's ruling.
