[Seth] Meyers then asked [Ted Cruz] why he continued to fight same-sex marriage, when polls shows a growing majority of Americans favor the legal recognition of such unions.
“Listen, I’m a constitutionalist,” Cruz said. “For over 200 years, marriage has been a question for the states. Now personally, I believe in traditional marriage between one man and one woman. But if you want to change the marriage laws, the way to do it constitutionally is to convince your fellow citizens, go to the state legislature, and change it. It shouldn’t be the federal government or unelected judges imposing their own definition of marriage. We should, instead, respect our constitutional system.”
“You know, I read the constitution this morning,” Meyers said, “and I don’t know if you’re right on all that stuff.”
