The map is slightly misleading. At first glance, you would assume blue states have a majority (over 50%) supporting gay marriage, red states have a majority opposed. However, the lightest shade of blue is 40-49% support.

While I personally support gay marriage, I think this actually hurts the cause. It appears to under-report the opposition to gay marriage and how much work still remains.
