Contributing sentiments towards policy:

52% : "This includes the right to marriage equality."He continued (emphasis mine):
51% : Republican Sens. Thom Tillis (N.C.), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), and Rob Portman (Ohio) are also reportedly signaling support for the still-forthcoming Senate version of the bill, while a predictable bloc of conservatives -- among them Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who recently seemed to encourage the Supreme Court to overturn the ruling that legalized same-sex marriage nationwide -- are lining up to oppose the measure.
48% : One month after the Supreme Court ruled against bodily autonomy by rolling back the federal right to reproductive health care, the Democratic-led House of Representatives on Tuesday preemptively passed a new bill to protect same-sex and interracial marriages from a seemingly increasingly likely Republican effort to roll back yet another suite of civil rights.
46% : And, although Justice Thomas did not mention the right to interracial marriage, that right relies on the same constitutional doctrines as the right to same-sex marriage and, therefore, it could be vulnerable to a legal challenge in the future as well.
45% : Even if we accept the Court's assurance in Dobbs that its decision does not call other rights into question, Congress should provide additional reassurance that marriage equality is a matter of settled law.
44% : In fact, in a concurring opinion in Dobbs, Justice Clarence Thomas explicitly called on the Court to reconsider its decisions protecting other fundamental rights, including the right to same-sex marriage.
26% : "The Supreme Court's recent decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health -- which extinguished the constitutional right to abortion -- has raised concerns among some people that other rights rooted in the constitutional right to privacy may be at risk, notwithstanding the Court's assurance that Dobbs was limited to abortion," Nadler explained.
