Public opinion on gay marriage

The debate over gay marriage is at the heart of many races in America's mid-term elections. For the first time since the Pew Research Centre began conducting polls on the subject in 1995, fewer than half of Americans (48%) are opposed to gay marriage, while 42% are in favour. All religious groups are more accepting than they were in polls taken between 2008 and 2009.
