ABC/WaPo: Majority Supports Path To Citizenship For Illegal Immigrants, Gay Marriage

Source: TPM

More than 50 percent of Americans support a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants and marriage for same-sex couples, according to a new poll from ABC News and the Washington Post released Wednesday.

There is robust support for a path to citizenship 57 percent while only 39 percent are opposed to a policy plank that could well be taken up by the incoming Congress.

Opinion is more divided on same-sex marriage, but it's still supported by a majority of the country. Fifty-one percent said they are in favor of allowing gay and lesbian couples to get married, while 47 percent are opposed.

1. That's great news, but why didn't they poll for cannabis legalization as well?

The issue is completely related to these other issues at this moment in American history (though obviously not equal).

Have there been any new polls on legalization since the gallup poll last year, which we now know is biased toward Republican views.
