Could it be the Republicans who deliver us marriage equality?

We have all heard that support for same-sex marriage is creeping up across the country but the source of the biggest jump may surprise you: a significant push is coming from the right.

With marriage equality falling off the radar for average Democrats, is it possible that it will actually be the Republicans that will deliver us equal rights?

There are still many more Democrats than Republican voters that support gay marriage (59 per cent vs 29 per cent) but in the past few years, the red line has been catching up with the blue.

That has given parts of the party fuel to renew the push for marriage equality, as I examine in this guest post for The Pacific Center in Berkeley.
