"American acceptance of gay rights is at its highest level in 30 years, according to a national poll released Tuesday.
A Gallup Poll shows that 59 percent of Americans believe that "homosexual relations between consenting adults" should be legal.
...Support for same-sex marriage also rose to an all-time high. Though supporters are still the minority, 46 percent of respondents believe marriages between same-sex couples should be legally validated.
The most support comes in relation to equality in the workplace, with 89 percent believing that gays 'should have equal rights in terms of job opportunities.'"
Among those 18-34 years of age, 75% say it’s acceptable while 23% do not.
Among those aged 35-54, it’s still 58% acceptable; 39% not.
You have to go to the 55+ age group to find a majority disapproving, and even there the level of acceptance is quite high (45% acceptable; 51% not)."*
