The Hill reports:

A majority within all partisan groups, including Republicans, now support same-sex marriage, according to a poll from the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) released on Tuesday.

The same survey found that the majority of all partisan groups also support LGBTQ+ nondiscrimination protections in housing, careers and public accommodations, including 62 percent of Republicans, 85 percent of Democrats and 79 percent of independents.
