Poll: Majority of Americans Support Supreme Court Rulings on Same-Sex Marriage

Post submitted by Eric Cameron, HRC Digital Media Specialist

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows that the majority of Americans agree with last week's marriage equality rulings from the Supreme Court.

By a 56-41 margin, the majority of Americans approved of the court’s ruling striking down the Defense of Marriage Act, providing legally married same-sex couples with the federal rights and benefits given to other married couples.

The poll also found 51 percent approved of the court’s decision returning marriage equality to California, while 45 percent disapproved.

Full results of the poll are available here.
