Support for gay marriage high in developed nations: poll

By Patricia Reaney NEW YORK (Reuters) - Most adults in developed countries favor gay marriage or some type of legal recognition for same-sex couples and think they should be able to adopt children, according to an international poll released on Tuesday.

New poll finds majority support in US for gay marriage

Fifty-two percent of Americans favor the US government recognizing same-sex marriages, with 42 percent opposed, a new poll showed Friday. The finding from the Public Religion Research Institute was released just days before the US Supreme Court hears oral arguments in two landmark cases involving marriage equality next week. "We have reached a tipping point on the issue of same-sex marriage in the country, fueled primarily by overwhelming support among younger Americans, but also by broader shifts in opinion," PRRI's chief executive Robert Jones said in a statement.
