Inevitability of gay marriage becoming clearer and clearer

Vice-President Joe Biden took a bunch of flack a while back for calling gay marriage “inevitable,” but the latest ABC/Washington Post poll makes him look prescient.

Here’s the lead from the release that accompanies the poll results:

More than half of Americans say it should be legal for gays and lesbians to marry, a first in nearly a decade of polls by ABC News and The Washington Post.

This milestone result caps a dramatic, long-term shift in public attitudes. From a low of 32 percent in a 2004 survey of registered voters, support for gay marriage has grown to 53 percent today. Forty-four percent are opposed, down 18 points from that 2004 survey.”

It’s enough to raise one’s spirit amongst all of the stories of environmental catastrophe and legislative efforts to repeal the 20th Century.
