61% Of Young Republicans 18-29 Favor Gay MarriageSubmitted by Robert Timsah on Wed, 03/12/2014 - 21:10
Young people continue to be the strongest proponents of same-sex marriage. And as public support for same-sex marriage continues to grow, the gap between young and old is nowhere more striking than within the Republican coalition.
Today, 61% of Republicans and Republican leaners under 30 favor same-sex marriage while just 35% oppose it. By contrast, just 27% of Republicans ages 50 and older favor allowing gays and lesbians to marry.
(I hope this trend continues, because it's always right there in the way of most Republican candidates.)
