1 in 3 Democrats Don't Back Same Sex Marriage

Newest platform for DNC has support of 2 out of 3 Democrats.


One day after national Democrats took a step toward include support for same-sex marriage on their official platform, a new survey from the Pew Forum suggests that most members of the party would support the move.

According to the poll, conducted from June 28-July 9 among 2,973 adults, nearly two in three Democrats - 65 percent - favor same-sex marriage.
