Where do you fall?
American voters are split down the middle over whether same-sex marriage should be legalized. While 46 percent are in favor, the same amount are opposed. But there are major differences in the voters' age, political identification, region and religiosity. Those under the age of 45 are largely in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage (60 percent), while those ages 45 and older largely oppose it (57 percent). Most Democrats (64 percent) are in favor, while most Republicans are opposed (66 percent). At the end of March, the U.S. Supreme Court will consider two cases concerning same-sex marriage, including one over California’s gay marriage ban. Last week, President Obama filed a “friend-of-the-court” amicus brief urging the SCOTUS to overturn the ban; the move put the administration at odds with the 37 states that have banned same-sex marriage.
