Gallup puts same-sex marriage support at record high

Posted By on Wed, May 21, 2014 at 7:39 AM

New Gallup polling puts American support for same-sex marriage at 55 percent, a record.

Younger Americans and Democrats are the most supportive of same-sex marriage, the poll found. 78 percent of those aged 18 to 29 said they support it along with 74 percent of Democrats.

Comparatively, 42 percent of people aged 65 and older and just 30 percent of Republicans said they support same-sex marriage. However, Republicans have nearly doubled their support since the firm began tracking the question.
