Quick Change in Support for Gay Marriage

A new Pew Research survey the rise in support for same-sex marriage over the past decade is among the largest changes in opinion on any policy issue over this time period.

The survey finds that "much of the shift is attributable to the arrival of a large cohort of young adults - the Millennial generation - who are far more open to gay rights than previous generations. Equally important, however, is that 14% of all Americans - and 28% of gay marriage supporters - say they have changed their minds on this issue, often because they have a family member or friend who is gay."
