The last scientific poll of social attitudes in the American population, the GSS, was just released. In this, we find that Americans continue to lean towards supporting marital rights for same sex couples. Support is now at around 50%, while opposition has fallen to about 39%. Crazy talk about all Americans supporting marriage rights is just that, as is the nonsense that the “majority” oppose marriage rights. Opposition remains high, but a near majority supports doing the right thing. That’s what our only scientific poll shows.
