Statistical Pockets of Same-Sex Marriage Support

4 Jan

According to Angus Reid, only 45% of Americans nationwide support same-sex marriage.

Civil union and domestic partnership laws in Vermont, Connecticut and New Jersey grant same-sex couples all state-level rights and obligations of marriage—in areas such as inheritance, income tax, insurance and hospital visitation. Other forms of domestic partnership exist in California, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, New Hampshire, Oregon and Washington State. There are more than 1,000 federal-level rights of marriage that cannot be granted by states.
