A new poll from Crain's Chicago Business demonstrates that Illinoisans overwhelmingly support the freedom to marry for same sex couples. Last week, the Illinois Senate passed a measure that would grant same sex couples the freedom to marry. The legislation awaits a vote in the Illinois House:

Most Illinois residents want the Legislature to legalize same-sex marriage in the state, according to the latest results of the Crain's/Ipsos Illinois Poll.

The survey of 600 adults found that 50 percent support the gay-marriage bill that cleared the state Senate last week and now awaits action in the House. That's considerably more than the 29 percent who oppose it, with 20 percent saying they don't know or have mixed feelings on the matter.
