"POLL: Majority Believe U.S. Constitution Should Determine Marriage Equality"

A new poll from Quinnipiac University has found the strongest support for marriage equality a Quinnipiac poll has ever found. For the first time, a Quinnipiac poll shows 50 percent support same-sex marriage while just 41 percent oppose it, a 28-point shift from just five years ago (36-55). Beyond that result, 56 percent believe that the question of same-sex marriage should be decided by the U.S. Constitution, while only 36 percent believe it should be left up to state laws. Perhaps the Supreme Court will similarly consider that gays and lesbians deserve equal protection under the Constitution instead of allowing individual states to continue to discriminate.
