Majority Of American Voters Favor Same-Sex Marriage, New Poll Finds

images (3)A new poll conducted by CBS and published by the Times shows Americans in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage are now in the majority.

According to the findings, 56% of registered voters believe same-sex couples should have the right to marry, and 33% believe laws regarding marriage equality should be determined by the federal government.

Additionally, 53% of voters claim they would never vote for a candidate who did not share their views on same-sex marriage.

Check out the full results of the poll, including who Americans are rooting for in the 2016 Presidential election, here.

      That last question is a tricky one. The distribution of those who feel strongly enough about this that it actually determines who they vote for is probably more balanced now than it was, but that 53% probably still favors the “against” side pretty heavily.

      As for the question itself… surely it depends as much on what the choices are as on a person’s own views?

      I would say that even if a majority are in favor, the majority of people in this country are still pretty homophobic anyways. Marriage is a pretty low threshold, until I stop seeing stereotypes, stigma, discrimination, slurs, and heterosexism I won’t be completely satisfied.
