A new study shows New Jersey voters think gay marriage issue should be placed on the Ballot in November even if their support grows in favor of the law.

According to a study of Quinnipiac Universitystudy of Quinnipiac University, the support for gay marriage climbs to a new high in New Jersey but, despite 57% of voters favorable to the law, 67% would like a referendum.

"The numbers are all over the lot. Voter support for same-sex marriage goes up every time we ask, but about half of them think Christie was right to veto it. By better than 2-1, they like the governor's proposal for a referendum," said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
