Country coming around on gay marriage

Posted By on Thu, Jul 28, 2011 at 8:13 AM

According to recent polling by a number of different organizations, it looks like a majority of Americans support full marriage rights for same sex couples.

A secondary analysis of public polling on marriage shows support has increased over the years and that the rate of increase has accelerated dramatically in the last 2 years. A number of public polling organizations, including Gallup, Washington Post/ABC, AP, CNN and Pew have asked roughly similar questions about marriage equality over time. Although there is some measure of variation in the results, when combined they show a clear trend.

I wonder what the numbers look like in Arkansas.
