7 in 10 Americans ‘Not Upset’ with Gay Marriage

Several polls show that over the past three years, there has been a significant change in American public opinion in favor of gay marriage. Still, those same polls suggest that, at best, the country today is about evenly divided on the issue, with just a slight majority willing to accept gay marriages as legal with all the same rights as traditional marriages.

A new poll by iMediaEthics, however, reveals a great deal more public tolerance of gay marriage than what most news stories report. Instead of a highly polarized public, in fact about 7 in 10 Americans are “not upset” with gay marriage, including about a quarter of the public that is intensely supportive. [cont.]
