Majority Favors Allowing Same-Sex Marriage

Marist Poll: "A majority of Americans favor legalizing same-sex marriage, but there is little consensus about whether the decision should be made on the federal or state level. Supporters of legalizing same-sex marriage think the issue should be decided for the entire country by a federal law. Half of those who oppose it believe it should be determined by the states."

"And, while Americans' position on legalizing same sex marriage is a driving factor in the debate, political party affiliation matters, too. Democrats are more likely to turn to the federal level, and Republicans look more to the states. Independents are closer to the Democrats on whether to seek federal or state action."
