Contributing sentiments towards policy:

50% : The U.S. House introduced and voted on the bill in response to the Supreme Court opinion in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, which overturned federal recognition of abortion established in Roe v. Wade and subsequent cases.
43% : The bill would recognize same-sex and interracial marriage as federal law and block states from preventing same-sex couples from marrying.
42% : The bill would also repeal the Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as the union between one man and one woman and does not recognize same-sex marriage.
41% : The 2015 U.S. Supreme Court case Obergefell v. Hodges ruled that same-sex couples have a Constitutional right to marry just as opposite-sex couples do.
34% : In the majority opinion, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote the court should also revisit the opinion in the Obergefell v. Hodges case, which, if also overturned, would allow states to make same-sex marriage illegal.
22% :Texas Sen. Ted Cruz called the Supreme Court decision recognizing same-sex marriage "clearly wrong" on his podcast on July 16, according to reporting from CNN.
