Views on the Legalization of Same-sex Marriage

Topics: LGBT

This week’s graphic illustrates a striking generation gap on same-sex marriage which crosses party lines. Majorities of Millennial Republicans (58%) and Democrats (77%) favor same-sex marriage, compared to 14% of senior Republicans (age 65 and older) and senior Democrats (50%). In other words, while older Republicans and Democrats remain quite polarized on the issue, younger Republicans and Democrats are closer to reaching an accord.
