Gallup: Majority of Americans believe gay relations ‘morally acceptable’

More insights from Gallup’s annual Values and Beliefs poll, conducted May 5-8, revealed that 56 percent of Americans consider gay and lesbian relations morally acceptable, the highest Gallup has measured since this question was first asked in 2001.

In addition, 64 percent of Americans said gay and lesbian relations between consenting adults should be legal, the highest since it first asked the question more than 30 years ago.

In the same poll, Gallup said support for gay marriage increased to the majority level for the first time.
