New polling by ABC News/Washington Post finds more Blacks now support marriage equality than the general population.
The new poll finds "strong" support for equal marriage from 53 percent of Americans. Fifty-nine percent of Blacks want to legalize same-sex marriage and 65 percent favor President Obama’s position. The data is "a new high among African-Americans in ABC/Post polls, up from four in 10 in recent surveys to 59 percent now," adds ABC News.
Another first: The number of Americans who "strongly" support same-sex marriage (39 percent) outweighs the number who "strongly" oppose it (32 percent).
The new polling comes about two weeks after President Obama's historic announcement supporting marriage equality. The NAACP also announced its support for equal marriage rights last weekend. Two words: Leadership. Matters.
