A new ABC/Washinton Post poll puts the American public behind the Supreme courts non-action legalizing same-sex marriage.
According to the poll, 56% said they supported the decision, while only 38% opposed it. These are the same numbers found to in a similar same-sex marriage poll conducted in June of this year.
Support for same-sex marriage was found in almost every demographic surveyed, with those under 40 supporting by 72%, and those with a college education supporting at 73%.
Those with a high school education or less opposed same-sex marriage by 50%, and Evangelical white Protestants opposed it 72%.
The poll was conducted through phone interviews the second week of October, 2014. The poll includes numbers from past surveys dating back to Sept, 2003. A pattern emerges showing support for same-sex marriage increasing steadily, and opposition dropping off at an equal rate.
