The poll conducted May 1-24, 2023, asked: “Do you think marriages between same-sex couples should or should not be recognized by the law as valid, with the same rights as traditional marriages?”
The same 2023 poll found that 64% of respondents said gay or lesbian relations are morally acceptable.
Support for making same-sex marriage legal was lower in a Pew Research Center poll.
That online survey of U.S. adults done in spring 2023 asked: “Do you strongly favor, somewhat favor, somewhat oppose or strongly oppose allowing gays and lesbians to marry legally?”
The result was 63% favored — 41% strongly favored and 22% somewhat favored.
