Polls are imperfect, yes; the marriage trend is undeniable, still
A new Washington Post-ABC News poll:
Overall, 53 percent of Americans say gay marriage should be legal, hitting a high mark in support while showing a dramatic turnaround from just six years ago, when just 36 percent thought it should be legal. Thirty-nine percent, a new low, say gay marriage should be illegal.
The poll also finds that 59 percent of African Americans say they support same-sex marriage, up from an average of 41 percent in polls leading up to Obama’s announcement of his new position on the matter. Though statistically significant, it is a tentative result because of the relatively small sample of black voters in the poll.

A jump from 36% to 53% in just six years? Maggie Gallagher can deny that epoch-making climb all she wants. Juts like our rights are not dependent on her or NOM's blessing, our momentum isn't dependent on their willingness to acknowledge its reality.
