in Uncategorized by

A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds support for gay marriage “now stands at 53%, up from 49% last March and 30% in 2004. For the first time, pollsters said, the survey found a majority of independent voters saying gays should be allowed to enter into same-sex marriages, with Democrats continuing to support gay marriage in large numbers and Republicans opposing it.”

Also interesting: “Half of all respondents believe people are born gay, with only 31% saying they choose to be gay. Fifteen years ago, views were split nearly evenly, with 41% saying people are born gay and 38% saying people choose to be gay.”
