New poll: Record high 59% of Americans support marriage equality

According to a new Washington Post/ABC News poll, a record high of 59% of Americans support marriage equality:

Half of all Americans believe that gay men and lesbians have a constitutional right to marry, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll in which a large majority also said businesses should not be able to deny serving gays for religious reasons.

Fifty percent say the U.S. Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection gives gays the right to marry, while 41 percent say it does not.

Beyond the constitutional questions, a record-high 59 percent say they support same-sex marriage, while 34 percent are opposed, the widest margin tracked in Post-ABC polling.

Bolding is mine.

In addition, 65 percent of Americans across the country think businesses should not be able to refuse service to gay people even if it violates their religious beliefs.
