Greg Ball, New York State Senator, Polls Twitter On Gay Marriage Vote

Greg Ball, New York State Senator, Polls Twitter On Gay Marriage Vote

As we've reported before, gay marriage legislation could come to a vote in Albany as early as Monday. Some state senators are still on the fence, including Greg Ball, a Republican from New York's 40th district who seemed like a probable "no" as of a few days ago. Last night he took to Twitter to poll the Internet on how he should vote; so far the responses are overwhelmingly positive, with barely any people saying no. Not a bad stunt, especially if Ball actually incorporates the Twitter responses into his decision.

This is one of the only negative responses I could find, from the appropriately-named @JesusFreak42:

Nearly everything else is more along these lines:

And the "yes" responses keep rolling in by the hundreds. Does this mean a state politician is actually listening to his constituents? If you want to pitch in, tweet your answer to @ball4ny.
