While it's sometimes said that in the future our current restrictions on gay marriage will be considered as ridiculous as opposing interracial marriage, it seems a significant number of people in Mississippi would like to take that leap backward. In a poll conducted by the left-leaning survey group Public Policy Polling, 46% of Mississippi Republicans said they believe interracial marriage should be illegal. 40% said it should stay legal and the rest weren't sure. Those who said they were against mixed-race marriages were most likely to support Sarah Palin, and disliked potential candidate Mitt Romney.
