A new Associated Press poll shows that 48 percent of Americans favor a constitutional amendment banning marriage equality. And while 55 percent say that marriage laws should be decided by states, 45 percent don’t want their states to allow marriages, though they’re more accepting of civil unions. How progressive of them, throwing us a soup bone like that.
This is not really surprising when you compare it to a recent Gallup poll showing that 1 in 10 Americans still disapprove of inter-racial relationships (like the ones protected in Loving v Virginia). Unsurprisingly, elderly people disapproved of them most with Southerners, Republicans, conservatives, and those in lower education levels following close behind.
