Election Day may reveal shift on same-sex marriage

Baltimore, Maryland (CNN) - From her Baltimore kitchen, Rebecca Murphy is lobbying legislators, crafting signs and making phone calls as she wages a battle to allow gays and lesbians to marry in her state.

The married mother of two doesn't have a personal stake in the fight. Rather, Murphy represents the growing number of people nationwide who support gay rights regardless of their own sexual orientation.

    Dixie, doesn't shift easily. Too many ignorant people.

    Most of Americans, especially, us, Independents, support civil rights for Gays, including marriage.

    Gay right is one thing marriage different rights yes marriage no.

    If you can produce a baby without sperm or an egg go ahead but you can't so stop your winning and get over it.

    No problem with equal rights but marriage is between a man and a woman.
