Support For Gay Marriage Continues To Rise

Charles Franklin from The Huffington Post reports:

Support for gay marriage continues to rise in a new Pew Center for the People and the Press poll, completed 2/22-3/1/2011. The latest poll shows support at 45% and opposition at 46%, the narrowest margin in the history of Pew polling on the issue.

The consistency of the trends since 2005, however, all but guarantee support will exceed opposition within the year.

The chart also highlights the Pew polls, which have tended to measure slightly lower levels of support than the overall trendline based on all polls.
