Live , anchor Thomas Roberts dropped all pretext of being a neutral journalist by explicitly telling viewers how they should vote on the controversial issue. Minnesota that they are different and should be treated differently in the constitution...Defense of Marriage Act.)  Joining me now is Jennifer Chrisler, Executive Editor of the -- Executive Director, excuse me, of the Family Equality Council. Jen, it's great to have you here and as we look at those headlines, and I want to dig deeper out of this out of The Boston Globe, Mitt Romney and this report it's saying that the governor rejected creating accurate birth certificates for gay parents in Massachusetts where marriage equality has been legalized over the last nine years, this despite a Department of Public Health lawyer saying the places that those kids at an unfair advantage in the long run, though, the Romney campaign has declined to comment on this report. Is that what people should expect from a Romney presidency, look at how he governed Massachusetts for how he could govern the country?...Look, at Family Equality Council what we talk about is advocating for families, and I think you only need to look at the records of these two candidates, you know, ignore the polls, ignore the ads and really look at their records because if you do that, when you go into the voting booth, I think if you're voting for your family, you'll have a really clear choice...Jen, as we look at the research for the four states, the ballot initiatives where marriage equality is taking place, is it likely that marriage equality will become a reality in those four states? Absolutely.  I think there is no doubt that the polls are trending very favorably in those four states. Oh, well I think all four of them have great chances to have positive wins. And I think that's because we're seeing these stories of our families, the connections that we're making with our community and our neighbors, and that's really changing the hearts of people in those four states...Minnesota that they are different and should be treated differently in the constitution...In Minnesota you need to vote no and the other three states you need to vote yes. Jennifer Chrisler, executive editor of the Family Equality Council, executive director, excuse me, I keep saying editor, Jen, and it's great to see you.
