Majority of Older Americans Support Gay Relationships

Well this is a pleasant surprise. Although it's almost a cliche to say young folks are overwhelmingly supportive of marriage equality, a new Gallup poll shows older Americans--those 55 and up--now find gay and lesbian relationships "morally acceptable."

"The Gallup poll show that 51% of people 55 and older find gay or lesbian relationships "acceptable," while 74% of those ages 18-34 and 54% of those 35-54 do. As reported by ThinkProgress, the percentage of older Americans who support same-sex relationships has doubled since 2001. Also in 2001, 52% of those 18-34 supported gay and lesbian relationships, while 42% of people 35-54 thought gay and lesbian relationships were morally acceptable."
