As most of my readers know, I am in favor of gay marriage. I see it no more and no less as simply treating consenting adults equally. Some of my conservative friends disagree strenuously with me. And, for a long time, at the ballot box, their view was winning.
Now, however, I wonder: have we reached a tipping point in American opinion?
Voters express strong support for the notion that the ability to marry the person you love is a fundamental freedom and Constitutional right for every American, including gays and lesbians. Three-quarters of voters (75%) believe that it is a Constitutional right, up from 71% in 2011. This sentiment spans across party lines, as 91% of Democrats, 75% of Independents, and 56% of Republican voters all believe the freedom to marry the person you love is a Constitutional right.
