A new survey from the Pew research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life shows support for marriage equality continues to increase, especially for Democrats. Polls have consistently shown marriage equality is a winning issue, and Pew similarly found that 48 percent of Americans support the freedom to marry while 44 percent oppose it. Among Democrats, support dramatically increased from 50 percent in 2008 to 65 percent in 2012, while Republican support only increased slightly from 19 percent to 24 percent. Support has increased among all age groups, but particularly those born after 1980, 63 percent of whom now support marriage equality. Attitudes on the nature of sexual orientation are also shifting, but more slowly, with 51 percent now believing orientation cannot be changed and 41 percent believing it’s something people are born with.
