June 8, 2021 – Record Support for Gay Marriage

A June 2021 Gallup poll found 70% of all Americans support gay marriage, a record high in a continuation of an upward trend since Gallup began polling on the issue in 1996 when support was at 27%.

The poll found 55% of Republicans supported same-sex marriage, the first time Gallup has found majority support among the political group. Support among Democrats (83%) and Independents (73%) also rose.

Majority support spanned age groups, with 84% of young adults, 72% of middle-aged adults, and 60% of older adults supporting gay marriage.
