WSJ/NBC News poll: Majority of Americans support gay marriage
In a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, 51% of Americans said they favor allowing same-sex marriages, up from 30% in 2004 and 41% just three years ago.
The Wall Street Journalreports that some of the sharpest swings in acceptance come among African-Americans and suburbanites.
In 2009, less than a third of blacks and 37% of Americans living in the suburbs said they approved of gay marriage. A majority of both of those groups now favor the unions.
It’s important that more black gays come out of the closet. It will only change with courage.
