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.

Who Are the Millennials?


There’s been a lot of talk about who millennials are and how different they are from ‘Gen-Xers’ and the ‘Baby Boomers’, but a lot of this commentary has to do with attitudes and priorities. Pew has recently done a study on millenials and how they access media and technology, which proved the basis for the graphic below. It is primarily concerned with how media and technology play a major role in shaping who millennials are, and how they interact with one another. It also addresses who millenials are, what’s important to them, how they value marriage and education, and other interesting facts and figures.
