American Voters Back Gay Marriage, Iran Deal, and Oppose Religious Exemption
The latest poll demonstrates once more how far the party controlling most of America is out of stride with the public.
American voters support same-sex marriage 58 - 34 percent, with strong support from every party, gender and age group except Republicans, who are opposed 59 - 33 percent, and voters over 55 years old, who support same-sex marriage by a narrow 48 - 43 percent.
By a 69 - 26 percent margin, including a 50 - 44 percent margin among Republicans, voters say businesses should not be allowed to refuse service to gays and lesbians.
By a smaller 58 - 35 percent margin, voters say businesses should not be allowed to refuse service to gays and lesbians, even if it violates a business owner’s religious beliefs.
Again, there is strong agreement among all groups except Republicans, who say 56 - 37 percent a business owner should be allowed to deny service based on religious belief.
