More Momentum for Marriage: Opposition Hits Record Low
May 23, 2012 by Dan Rafter, Associate Director of Communications
A new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows that 53 percent of Americans support marriage equality – in line with a number of other recent polls that show support at or comfortably above 50 percent.
The poll also found that 55 percent of Americans say Obama’s marriage equality stance won’t be impacting their vote. That echoes findings in an NBC News/WSJ poll released yesterday, which found that 62 percent of voters weren’t planning on being swayed by a candidate’s position on marriage equality when in the voting booth this November.
Other findings from the poll include support for marriage equality among African American voters hitting 59 percent, and that 71 percent of Americans have an LGBT family member, friend or acquaintance.
