Morning Poll -- Gay Marriage: Can You Dig It?

Arizonans owe a California judge a thank-you. In what some are calling an act of "judicial activism," the Golden State has taken the national spotlight off Arizona and the immigration debate -- for the moment, anyway.

You're probably aware that a federal judge in California ruled to overturn Prop 8, a voter-approved ban on gay marriage.

What does that mean for Arizona? Not a whole lot, but it's got people talking about overturning the state's own anti-gay-marriage statute.

In 2008, Arizona voters approved a law that defines marriage as a union between one man and one woman. In the constant struggle for content in the 24-hour news cycle, news outlets in Arizona have tried to swing the gay marriage debate into a local story, claiming the ruling in California could affect the Arizona law.

The Cally decision can't change Arizona's law, but some news outlets are saying it lays "the groundwork for a legal battle that could change gay marriage in Arizona."

We want to know what you think: should Arizona's law on gay marriage be changed, even though it's been approved by voters?
