Poll: 65 percent of Democrats support gay marriage
Poll: Partisan gap widens on gay marriage; 65 percent of Democrats now support it
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ¯¯¯ A new poll shows that the partisan gap over same-sex marriage continues to widen, with 65 percent of Democrats now supporting it compared to 24 percent of Republicans.

The Pew Research Center poll found an increase in support among Democrats after President Barack Obama's announcement in May that he favored same-sex marriage. A poll taken in April found 59 percent of Democrats in support.

The latest poll was released a day after Democratic Party leaders said they intended to add support for gay marriage to the party platform at the Democratic National Convention in early September.



At the time of the previous convention, in 2008, 50 percent of Democrats favored legalizing gay marriage, while 42 percent were opposed.

In the new poll, only 29 percent of Democrats were opposed.
