Less Opposition to Gay Marriage, Adoption and Military Service
Only 34% Favor South Dakota Abortion Ban

Released: March 22, 2006



Summary of Findings

Public acceptance of homosexuality has increased in a number of ways in recent years, though it remains a deeply divisive issue. Half of Americans (51%) continue to oppose legalizing gay marriage, but this number has declined significantly from 63% in February 2004, when opposition spiked following the Massachusetts Supreme Court decision and remained high throughout the 2004 election season. Opposition to gay marriage has fallen across the board, with substantial declines even among Republicans.

These are among the results of the latest national survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, conducted among 1,405 adults from March 8-12. The poll also finds less opposition to gays serving openly in the military and a greater public willingness to allow gays to adopt children. A 60% majority now favors allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military, up from 52% in 1994, and 46% support gay adoption, up from 38% in 1999.


Could America be moving in the right (correct) direction.

"Has declined significantly from 64 % in February 2004"
Nothing drops that much in two years.
Sorry.
Next survey.

I guess you haven't looked at Bush's approval ratings then.
