Support for Gay Marriage Reaches Record High

Support for same-sex marriage has reached a record high, the latest Washington Post/ABC News poll reports.

Some 58 percent of Americans now say gay and lesbian couples should be allowed to get married, up from a low of 32 percent of registered voters just nine years ago in the Post/ABC poll. Support for gay marriage reached a narrow majority in the poll for the first time two years ago, according to ABC pollster Gary Langer.

“Results of this survey extend evidence of a remarkable transformation in public attitudes,” Mr. Langer writes. “Views on basic social issues often move slowly, if at all.”
