Good News Poll: New York supports same-sex marriage

As the New York Senate considers a bill on same-sex marriage, word comes today from Talking Points Memo of a poll showing that registered voters support passage. This is good news indeed. TPM has a good breakdown of the internals. The poll itself:
By a 53-39 percent margin, voters support the Senate passing a bill to legalize same sex marriages that would virtually ensure its becoming law. Democrats, independent and young voters, and women strongly support Senate passage. Republicans strongly oppose passage, with men, older voters, African Americans, and Protestants also opposed. Support is strongest in New York City. Every region of the state supports passage.
Perhaps the most important sentence is that paragraph is the last one. That means majority support in every Senate district in the state. One note of caution: The 53 percent figure is within the poll's margin of error.
