Wow, Most Americans Support Gay Marriage

Washington - The vast majority of Americans expressed support for same-sex Marriage. 53 Percent of Uncle Sam's public support Gay Marriage. This figure increased 20 percent from the last survey in 2004 ie, 32 per cent.

This was conveyed to a survey that reflects the shift in sentiment in the U.S. against this kind of marriage issue, as quoted by AFP on Saturday (03/19/2011). The survey was conducted of 1005 adults over four days in the last week.

Gary Langer of Langer Research Associates, which conducted the survey agency, citing the results of his research as "a milestone result for a dramatic shift in public behavior."

Five years ago, only a majority of young people under the age of 30 years who supports gay marriage. However, today the majority of them are aged in their 30s and 40s support it, as shown in the results of the survey.

However, overall the American public is still divided about gay marriage, with the number of adults who strongly opposed the marriage of a kind.

The survey also states, the Republicans oppose gay marriage with a ratio of two to one, and evangelical white Protestants, who became the core of conservatives, oppose gay marriage with a ratio of three to one.

Gay marriage is legal in five U.S. states, in ibokuta, Washington, and some small regions also allow the marriage.

Obama Administration last month said it will not be long again defend the constitutionality of the Marriage Act 1996 which prohibits the federal recognize gay marriage. However, the Republican who heads the U.S. House of Representatives pledged to fight to thwart the president's decision in court.

The Obama administration late last month said It would no longer defend the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act, a 1996 law banning federal recognition of Gay Marriages, but the Republican-led House of Representatives has vowed to fight the president's decision in the Courts.
