The partisan divide over gay marriage continues to grow in the US with a new poll showing that 65% of Democrats now favor marriage equality while just 24% of Republicans do.
The numbers are from a survey of 2,973 adults taken between June 28 and July 9 conducted by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life and the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press.
The 65% figure is a rise from the 50% from just four years ago and is more than double the 29 percent of those Democrats who are opposed.
