Pew Survey: Support For Marriage Equality Soars To Record 62% On Second Anniversary Of Obergefell

The Washington Examiner reports:

Support for gay marriage among U.S. adults hit 62 percent in June, the highest level ever recorded, according to a Pew Research poll released Monday. The June 8-18 survey found just under one-third of Americans do not support same-sex marriage, further increasing the gap between advocates and opponents.

Pew, who has been tracking Americans’ opinions on the issue for two decades, found the greatest uptick in support came over the past year with a 7-point increase. The shift is a result of groups who have historically not supported the policy increasingly changing their minds, including baby boomers, African-Americans and Republicans.
