According to Newsmax and unnamed "published reports," at least 34 U.S. Senators would vote no on the Marriage Amendment:

What stand a better chance is to limit the jurisdiction of Federal Courts--something that only takes a simple majority, rather than a 2/3 majority of both House and Senate and then 3/4 of the States.

I continue to feel that we should do both: pass a federal marriage amendment if we can, and pass legislation limiting the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts. I don't think we should assume up front that an amendment is politically impossible. And we should remember that what can be done with a simple majority can be undone with a simple majority. If an amendment would be harder to pass, it would also be much harder to repeal.

True enough. I'm still not entirely convinced however.
