A record number of Americans now support same-sex marriage, according to a new national poll.
Seventy percent of Americans favor allowing same-sex couples to marry legally, including 80% of Democrats, 76% of independents and half of Republicans, according to the 11th annual American Values Survey conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute.
The poll also found that support across religious groups has increased for same-sex marriage.
Religiously, support was high among white ‘mainline’ Protestants at 79 percent, Hispanic Roman Catholics at 78 percent, and non-Christians at 72 percent. 68 percent of Hispanic Protestants, 67 percent of white Catholics, 57 percent of Black Protestants, and 56 percent of others that classify themselves in other Christian denominations also supported marriage equality in majority.
Interviews for the survey were conducted among a random sample of 2,538 adults in the U.S. in September with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.
A majority of Americans also favor laws to protect LGBTQIA+ people against discrimination, the survey found, including 94% of Democrats, 85% of independents and 68% of Republicans.
A June Gallup poll found that 67% of Americans support gay marriage — the highest percentage ever recorded by Gallup since it began measuring support for same-sex marriage in 1996 when it was 27%.
According to a University of Chicago poll taken in 1988, a mere 11 percent of Americans supported marriage equality.
