Opinion on Same-Sex Marriage Appears to Shift at Accelerated Pace - FiveThirtyEight
In April, 2009, when we last took a survey of gay marriage polls, we found that support for it had converged somewhere into the area of 41 or 42 percent of the country. Now, it appears to have risen by several points, and as I reported yesterday, it has become increasingly unclear whether opposition to gay marriage still outweighs support for it.
Here is a version of the graph we produced in 2009, but updated to include the dozen or so polls that have been conducted on it since that time, as listed by pollingreport.com. I have also included opinions on gay marriage from the General Social Survey, which asked about gay marriage as long ago as 1988.
This seems to be a black hole issue no matter how much the bigots and homophobes scream. This open bias towards gay men and women is going the way of segregation, end of story. Get on the bandwagon now before it runs over you.
