Full Survey Results

In 2014, Pew Research Center conducted the U.S. Religious Landscape Study based on telephone interviews with more than 35,000 Americans from every US state. Equaldex groups "Favor" and "Strongly Favor" together and "Oppose" and "Strongly Oppose" together. The excluded percentage is respondents who answered "Don't Know" or refused to answer.

Question: "Do you strongly favor, favor, oppose or strongly oppose allowing gays and lesbians to marry legally?"
