Obama team trumpets new polling on gay marriage
Obama team touts positive polling on gay marriage after president announced his support for it
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' President Barack Obama's re-election campaign is touting new polls that show growing support for gay marriage following the president's public embrace of same-sex unions.

In a conference call announcing efforts to get gay and lesbian voters engaged in the campaign, officials said public opinion on same-sex marriage was increasingly tilting in their favor.

That includes a Washington Post-ABC News poll out Wednesday showing that 53 percent of Americans say gay marriage should be a legal, a new high for that poll.



Despite the national poll numbers, Obama's support for gay marriage remains politically risky.

Thirty states ban gay marriage, including North Carolina, an important political battleground. North Carolina voted to ban same-sex unions the day before Obama announced his support for such marriages in a television interview.
