A recent Gallup poll shows that for the first time ever, a majority of Americans favor legal gay marriage.
Since 1996 Gallup has been asking the same question: Do you think that marriages between same-sex couples should or should not be recognized by the law as valid, with the same rights as traditional marriages? The first time it was asked the response was 68% NO and just 27% YES. The past few years have seen the numbers converge but for the first time ever, the Yes' outweigh the No's.
When this question was asked, for the first time 53% of Americans feel that same-sex marriage (SSM) should be equal to "traditional marriage." That's a 9 point jump from last year! Not surprisingly the younger demographic (18-34) favor SSM the most with 70% compared to those 55+ at only 39% in favor. Not surprisingly Republicans oppose it the most with only 28% favoring opposed to 69% of Democrats.
