Poll: Support for Gay Marriage May Be Leveling Off
A survey released Monday from the Pew Research Center indicates American support for same-sex marriage could be leveling off after several years of dramatic growth in acceptance of equal rights for gays and lesbians.
The study’s authors caution it’s too soon to draw any definitive conclusions. But the new poll released Monday found a 5 percentage point drop since February, from 54 percent to 49 percent, in Americans who want legal recognition for same-sex relationships. The percentage of those opposed increased during that same period, from 39 percent in February to 41 percent last month.
The poll of 2,002 adults, conducted Sept. 2-9, has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points.
ABC but let’s see Life Site News’ headline on the same story just for “balance”.
**Pew poll shows drop in support for same-sex ‘marriage’: new trend or a blip? **
Support for same-sex “marriage” is down by five points since 2010, according to a new Pew Research poll.
Much better, I’m not sure of all the particulars myself. I hope this trend continues. People jumped on the same-sex marriage bandwagon too quickly from what I can see and we have had an administration who seemingly opportunistically, aided the cause.
To me, the headline should read more like “Support for Same-Sex Marriage Has Dropped”. Period.
