NEW GALLUP POLL SHOWS A MAJORITY OF AMERICANS NOW FAVOR LEGALIZING GAY MARRIAGE
For the first time since it began tracking the issue, the Gallup Poll has found that a majority (53%) of Americans now support same sex marriage. The poll shows a dramatic shift from fifteen years ago, when two-thirds were in opposition. The change, which demonstrated a nine percent gain in support over last year, was, Gallup said, largely attributable to shifts among Democratic and Independent voters. Republican support remained the same as last year.
