Poll: Very strong support for marriage equality for those under 50

A new Politico poll conducted in the most competitive House and Senate districts shows strong support for marriage equality among those under 50.

Of those people between the ages of 18-34, support stands at a rocking 61 percent.

Slightly more than half of those between ages 35 and 49 support gay marriage.

The figure drops to 48 percent among those aged 50-64. Overall, 52 percent of those surveyed oppose gay marriage.

It should be noted that the poll consisted of slightly more self-identified Republicans (39%) than Democrats (34%), and 65% of those polled considered themselves “very religious.”
