Gallup: 52 Percent Of Americans Support Same-Sex Marriage In All 50 States
A new gallup poll shows 52% of Americans support legalizing same-sex marriage in all 50 states.
Suppose that on Election Day you could vote on key issues as well as candidates. Would you vote for or against a federal law that would make same-sex marriages legal in all 50 states?
52% Vote for
43% Vote against
Across the nation’s major demographic, political, and religious groups, support for the proposed law ranges from as high as 77% among self-described liberal Americans, and 76% among those with no religious affiliation, to as low as 23% among weekly churchgoers, and 30% among Republicans and conservatives.
Of course rights should never be put up for a vote, and therefore we shouldn’t even be having a debate. But since same-sex marriage is not legal in all 50 states, this is an important revelation. And even though Republicans pretend to be the mouthpiece of prevailing opinion among average Americans, this poll shows otherwise.
