POLL: 51 Percent Agree With Obama On Marriage Equality

A new USA TODAY/Gallup poll shows that 51 percent of voters approve President Obama’s endorsement of marriage equality, while 45 percent disapprove. It seems the President may lose some support to Mitt Romney, suggesting that those who oppose marriage equality feel more strongly about the issue than those who support it. According to the survey, though, 60 percent say Obama’s support for the freedom to marry will have no bearing on how they vote in the November election. For the past two years, polling has consistently shown that a majority of voters approve of same-sex marriage, particularly among Democrats and Independents.
