Still glowing from the victories in Vermont, Iowa, and Washington, D.C.? Check out this map from NPR laying out the “Legal Battle Over Gay Marriage,” state-by-state. See all those blue states (all 40 of them)? Those all have defense of marriage acts or constitutional bans on the books, and no pending legislation challenging them.
The 10 other states (and the District of Columbia) either have legislation pending, have domestic partnerships or civil unions that afford equal rights with marriage, or allow gay marriage. Still, the big picture is looking pretty blue.
