    No movement in poll numbers over the last couple of years.

    Americans' views on same-sex marriage have essentially stayed the same in the past year, with a majority of 57% opposed to granting such marriages legal status and 40% in favor of doing so. Though support for legal same-sex marriage is significantly higher now than when Gallup first asked about it in 1996, in recent years support has appeared to stall, peaking at 46% in 2007.

    Good news. The MSM isn't succeeding in its pro-homosexual agenda.

    Damn Americans clinging to their religion.

    I wonder how segregation was polling during 1959-1968.

    Appeal to Popularity

    Appeals to popularity suggest that an idea must be true simply because it is widely held. This is a fallacy because popular opinion can be, and quite often is, mistaken. Hindsight makes this clear: there were times when the majority of the population believed that the Earth is the still centre of the universe, and that diseases are caused by evil spirits; neither of these ideas was true, despite its popularity.

    Its apples and oranges: Segregating someone over what the cant control like their color is one thing. Segregating someone over their choices is another.

    What a brilliant argument. Equating ones choice in sexual preference to one's non-choice in skin color.

    You are comparing a morally sound initiative with a morally repugnant one. Perhaps your question should be "I wonder how Euthanasia for the mentally handicapped was polling at the turn of the century." It's more accurate to compare the polling numbers from two morally repugnant concepts.

    IMO

    Sexual orientation is NOT a choice. It's a hard-wired personality trait like left-handed.

    If you want to PM me some current behavioral and biological studies that say different. I'd be happy to review them.
