A recent poll conducted by ABC News and the Washington Post shows that support among Americans for marriage equality is at an all time high. The poll also found that the majority of respondents also oppose the ‘right’ to refuse business to someone on the basis of religious freedom (similar to the recent Senate Bill 1062 which was vetoed in Arizona).
According to the survey 59 percent of those who responded support marriage equality, up from just 32 percent in 2004. 34 percent opposed marriage equality, this number represents a 13 percent decrease since 2012.
The poll also found that 81 percent of respondents oppose allowing businesses to refuse service to gays and lesbians; 65 percent say so even if business owners cite there religious beliefs
Regarding adoption and on and parenting, 61 percent of respondents said gay couples should be allowed to adopt, and 78 percent said gays “can be as good parents as straight people.”
