Posted on 08/02/2012 9:31:48 AM PDT by Wise Hectare
Support for same-sex marriage has risen across the board in the last four years, new polling data shows, signalling a shift in the overall political and social views of Americans.
The new data, released Wednesday by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, shows a higher percentage of Democrats, Republicans, whites, minorities and people of all generations support same-sex marriage legalization....
Among voting groups, there has been an increase in support for same-sex marriage even among Republicans. Since 2008, Democrats have jumped in support from 50 to 65 percent; Republicans from 19 to 24 percent; and Independents from 44 to 51 percent....
The Pew data supports other recent polls showing acceptance of gay rights is becoming the new norm for Americans. A May Gallup poll showed a majority of Americans polled consider gay or lesbian relations morally acceptable.
The poll showed 63 percent of Americans believe gay relations writ large should be legal, with non-religious Americans, women, youth and Democrats more supportive of gay rights.
Government policy has also been shifting in favor of this new norm. This year not only saw the president's public announcement in support of gay marriage, but also the repeal of Don't' Ask, Don't Tell, leading to more open acceptance -- and even praise -- for gays, lesbians and bisexuals serving in the armed forces.

Wonder if they sampled Democrats over any other political group. This is certainly not the case as evidenced yesterday.
They polled a total of 25 people...
Bull Sh—! As seen yesterday Americans do not approve of it. Chik-Fila shows that the hate filled left has lost the argument. This poll is nothing but gay propaganda.
The endless pro-gblt onslaught by the News, Entertainment, and government school collectives is paying off for the collectivist totalitarians.
Most queers are fiercely individualist. They don’t realize that this works against them BIG TIME in the end (no pun intended).
I believe this is likely true. It requires no hard work to be a kind and caring liberal. Nor does it require logic or the ability to reason.
Until it’s put up for a vote, and magically the majority says no each and every time.
“Odd” that a financial news service would deny the obvious of yesterday’s buycott of Chick-Fil-A and push the homosexual agenda.
Is the writer or editor homosexual, by chance?
This turns out not to be the case.
Nice try, and lets put queer marriage up for a vote when people don’t have to tell a pollster on the phone what they really think and instead can vote in the privacy of the voting booth.
And yet, gay marriage goes down in flames every time it is put on the ballot, even in the bluest of blue states like California. The ONLY way gay marriage came into existence was because some judge decided he was going to be a one man legislature and find a right for it in a state constitution.
As explained by the speakers at sorosfiles.com, the communists are Øbama’s foundation.
One of their manifesto items is to destroy the traditional family unit.
All this homo BS is one of the means.
One side (the libs) is winning because they are the only ones really fighting this battle, for the revolution.
The Chick’fil-A fight is fun because libs over-reached, but this is just an anomaly. Libs HAVE the the schools, the media, the kids channels/shows, colleges, and the Republican channel FNC wont normally get involved, and libertarians are on the side of libs on this one.
Hell, you really think Romney opposes same sex marriage?
I find it very discouraging.
And again, Welcome to Free Republic!
In related news, 65% of the nation is in severe drought, with over 50% of U.S. counties declared disasters.
The new norm denies normal?
Bogus poll. Google “Bradley / Wilder effect”.
The ignorant chattering class may shrug and figure they’ll jump on the bandwagon created by the Democrat “mainstream” newsrooms, but deep down, most normal people are creeped out by faggots. It’s been that way for thousands of years and will always be that way. A penis wasn’t meant to lay in a pile of sh**.
You has an interesting posting history n00b......
