For the first time ever, the Pew Hispanic Center’s National Survey of Latinos has found that a majority of Hispanics (52 percent) support marriage equality. Only 34 percent oppose allowing same-sex couples to marry. This is a complete flip from six years ago, when 56 percent opposed and only 31 percent supported the freedom to marry. A similar poll recently found that 60 percent of Latinos support marriage equality. in  One exception to the result was that evangelical Christian Latinos still largely oppose marriage equality (66 percent).
