For The First Time, Majority Of Americans Support Gay Marriage
In the poll, 53% of American adults said they think same sex marriage should be legal, compared to 44% who said it should not be. ABC found support for same sex marriage up six points from just one year ago, when 47% of Americans told the network it should be legal, while 50% said it should remain illegal. Support for same sex marriage has been trending up for years. In 2004, just over six in ten Americans opposed gay marriage, while about one-third supported it, according to the CNN.
Quite a change in public opinion over the past seven years. Good thing we elected Tea Party folks in 2010 to keep those queers from having the same rights us hetero folks do (in the name of "small government", of course).
