New Gallup Marriage Poll

Gallup reports: Fifty-three percent of Americans say the law should recognize same-sex marriages, the third consecutive reading of 50% or above in Gallup polling over the past year. The 53% in favor ties the high to this point, also measured last November and in May 2011. Gallup’s May 2-7 poll suggests Americans’ support for gay marriage is solidifying above the …

Gallup Ranks Gayest States

Gallup today issued the results of a poll conducted last year in which they asked over 200,000 people if they “personally identify” as LGBT.   As with all such self-disclosure surveys, the numbers are somewhat skewed by those who decline to out themselves to pollsters. The percentage of U.S. adults who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) ranges from …

Gallup Poll: Religiosity By State

Gallup recaps their findings: Overall, 40% of Americans nationwide were classified as very religious in 2012 — based on saying religion is an important part of their daily life and that they attend religious services every week or almost every week. Thirty-one percent of Americans were nonreligious, saying religion is not an important part of their daily life and that …

Peter Sprigg: The Rise In Out Gays Disproves The Gay Gene Theory

“There has been a significant growth in the number of women who identify as lesbian, bisexual or transgender — a much larger growth than the number of men. In 1994, there were twice as many homosexual men as women, but now homosexual women actually outnumber the homosexual men. During that time span, the number of homosexual men has increased by …

Gallup Takes A Swipe At Nate Silver

Last week Nate Silver ranked Gallup as the worst polling firm when it came to accurately predicting the 2012 election results. Gallup’s editor fired back on Friday. We have a reverse law of the commons with polls. It’s not easy nor cheap to conduct traditional random sample polls. It’s much easier, cheaper, and mostly less risky to focus on aggregating …

GALLUP POLL: 46% Of Americans Are Young Earth Creationists

Gallup poll: Forty-six percent of Americans believe in the creationist view that God created humans in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years.

Gallup: Gay Is The New Normal

Gallup reports today: The slight majority of American adults, 54%, consider gay or lesbian relations morally acceptable. Public acceptance of gay/lesbian relations as morally acceptable grew slowly but steadily from 38% in 2002 to 56% in 2011 and is now holding at the majority level. This Gallup trend mirrors the growth in public support for legalizing gay marriage, which has …

Gallup Asks About Obama’s Evolution

Reacting swiftly to the president’s announcement, Gallup has already done a random poll of 1000 adults reached by phone.

Based on the survey …
