A new Gallup poll shows fifty Percent of Americans support legalizing same-sex marriage.

The poll comes as North Carolina voters go to the polls on Tuesday to vote on a constitutional amendment that would define marriage as a union between a man and a woman, and effectively ban same-sex marriage and civil unions…

This year’s poll found Americans divided along political and religious lines.

Nearly two-thirds of Democrats support allowing same-sex marriage, along with more than half of independents, while fewer than a quarter of Republicans believe it should be allowed.
