Polling: more Americans support gay marriage than oppose

In the poll, 53% of American adults said they think same sex marriage should be legal, compared to 44% who said it should not be. ABC found support for same sex marriage up six points from just one year ago, when 47% of Americans told the network it should be legal, while 50% said it should remain illegal.

Support for same sex marriage has been trending up for years. In 2004, just over six in ten Americans opposed gay marriage, while about one-third supported it, according to the CNN poll.
