- Numbers don't lie March 5
Support for same-sex marriage is up to a new record high of 59 percent, according to the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll. Meanwhile, just 34 percent oppose gay marriage, a number that has dwindled markedly in the past couple of years; in late 2012, almost half the nation opposed gay marriage.
Moreover, the survey found that exactly half the nation thinks the Constitution "gives gays and lesbians a legal right to marry," versus 41 percent who do not. In other words, we're moving beyond the debate about whether same-sex couples should be allowed to wed, and on to one about whether marriage is an inherent constitutional right.- -
