New poll: Record support for marriage equality

From Think Progress:
Half of Americans believe that the U.S. Constitution gives gays and lesbians the right to marry, according to a new poll....

Support for gay marriage has also risen to 59 percent, a record high for the survey, while opposition to gay marriage has fallen to 34 percent.

In addition, the poll found that a large majority of Americans -- 81 percent -- said businesses shouldn't be allowed to refuse service to gays. Sixty-five percent said they believe service still shouldn't be refused to gays even if homosexuality violates the business owners' religious beliefs.
