For first time, most Americans favor gay marriage

Confirming what several other national polls have found in the last few months, the latest Gallup poll says that a majority of Americans support legal gay marriage for the first time.

According to the poll, 53 pecent of Americans believe same-sex marriage should be recognized by the law as valid, with the same rights as traditional marriages.

Who has changed their minds? Democrats (13 percent) and Independents (10 percent). Republicans haven’t moved.
