GRAPHIC: Polling Data On Marriage Equality 1985-2015

As 2014 comes to a close we should take stock of where we are on the question of marriage equality. Right now 35 states have marriage equality, with Florida (the 3rd largest state in the Union) going into effect on Monday January 5. That is very close to two-thirds of the population living in jurisdictions with marriage equality.

The U.S. Supreme Court is considering appeals from the states in the 6th Circuit within the next week or so and if they grant certiorari then we could have a final national determination by July 2015.

The graphic above shows the  polling data on support for marriage equality (i.e. same-sex marriage) for the last three decades. It's a pretty picture!
