Poll: Majority oppose gay marriage

A significant majority of Americans oppose gay marriage, according to a new poll by Politico. The poll of likely voters found that only 40 percent believe same-sex couples should be legally married. "Thirty percent said gays should be allowed civil unions but not marriage, and 24 percent opposed all types of legal unions for homosexuals – meaning a total of 54 percent oppose gay marriage," writes Keith Koffler at White House Dossier. "The poll suggests that, as the Supreme Court prepares to take up the Constitutionality of gay marriage, support for the idea – as well as President Obama’s decision to back gay marriage – might not be as strong as generally thought."  Read it all.
