The march toward full equality in America continues with the release of the latest Washington Post/ABC Poll. The polling tested American attitudes before the Supreme Court announces its decision by the end of the month.
A vast majority of Americans (57%) support marriage equality nationwide but even more support the rights of LGBT couples (63%) to have the exact same benefits at the Federal level as straight married couples. Only 40% of Americans now oppose marriage equality and a mere 34% oppose granting benefits at the Federal level.
Marriage Equality advocates are making great progress among Republican a full third now supporting equal rights for LGBT Americans. While seniors are still against marriage equality, 40% now has come around to the concept.
