A Public Majority Supports Adoption By Same-Sex Couples
We know that a majority of Americans support the right of individuals to marry the person they love -- even if that person is of the same sex. Now we learn that a majority of people in the United States also support the right of same-sex couples to adopt children. About 53% of Americans see nothing wrong with same-sex couples adopting, and providing a good home for, children. Only 32% support continuing bigotry.
This is a good thing -- because it means our country is still moving toward equal rights for all citizens.
The chart was made from the results of a new Rasmussen Poll -- done on March 8th and 9th of a random national sample of 1,000 adults, with a margin of error of 3 points.
