titleA new poll pegs US support for marriage equality at 59%.

The Wall Street Journal reports:

Support for gay marriage has risen to an all-time high in the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, reinforcing it as one of the fastest-moving changes in social attitudes of this generation. The new survey found that 59% of Americans support allowing same-sex marriage, nearly double the 30% support reported in 2004. Fred Yang, the Democratic pollster who conducted the survey with Republican Bill McInturff said public opinion about gay marriage is changing at a much more rapid rate than did the nation’s attitudes toward interracial marriage, which now is supported by 87% of Americans.


More than a third of conservatives now support it, and 3/4ths of Democrats do.
