For the First Time–A Majority of Americans Support Legalization of Same-Sex Marriage

A new Washington Post-ABC poll shows that 53% of the nation now believes that marriage between partners of the same-sex should be legal. This is a dramatic change.  Barely 5 years ago, only 35%–just over a third–favored the legalization of same-sex marriage.  This is an amazing shift in public consciousness in just five years.  The support is strongest among those under 35–which argues for the eventual success of marriage equality.
