And now Vermont
The Vermont legislature has overridden a gubernatorial veto and become the fourth state in the union to officially legalize gay marriage.
In the wake of last week’s Iowa decision, Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight.com, who accurately and almost precisely predicted the election of Barack Obama to the Presidency (but, granted, failed to accurately predict the winner of the World Series) did an examination of the state-by-state demographic shifts. Using this data he made a prediction, as to when he believed the tipping point would come that more people would accept than oppose gay marriage, and therefore the latest date he believed each state would vote against a ban like Prop 8.
The first state on his list? Vermont.
New Hampshire, I guess you’re up next.
