A new chart released by the Williams Institute at UCLA shows the huge increase in marriage equality support state-by-state between 2004 and 2012. The Dallas Voice reports:

The study found that the country’s overall support for marriage quality had an average increase of 13.6 percent, with more than 50 percent of citizens in 12 states and the District of Columbia supporting it. Based on the current trend, the study estimates that 20 states and the District of Columbia will support same-sex marriage at or more than 50 percent by the end of 2014.

This is the same study that we reported on last week, but this new chart makes it easier to see the shifts by state, and where each state falls overall.
