Support for Gay Marriage Reaches Record High (POLL)

An ABC News/Washington Post poll conducted this month found Americans’ support for same-sex marriage at 61 percent, the highest level of support recorded by ABC/Post polls to date.

Similarly, 61 percent say they oppose allowing states to prohibit same-sex marriages, and 62 percent support requiring states to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states.

There continue to be large differences in views of the issue by age. The poll found support for same-sex marriage at 78 percent among adults under age 30, compared with 46 percent among those 65 and older. And partisanship is a factor: While 76 percent of Democrats and 66 percent of independents support same-sex marriage, support drops to 34 percent among Republicans. abcnews
