Almost No Americans Want a 'Homosexual Marriage'

While the media propaganda drumbeat tries to convince you that every OTHER American favors "gay marriage," a new Gallup survey finds that only a fraction of one percent of the population wants to live in a homosexual relationship, and even fewer have any interest to engage in a same-sex "marriage."

Only God knows how this entire nation could be turned upside down over the same-sex marriage question currently before the U.S. Supreme Court.

-- From "Gallup poll finds more gay marriages, domestic partnerships than thought" by Michael Muskal, Los Angeles Times 4/24/15

According to the latest Gallup poll, about 0.3% of adults in the United States are married to a same-sex spouse and an additional 0.5% identify as being in a same-sex domestic partnership.

That works out to about 390,000 same-sex married couples in the United States and about 600,000 domestic partnership couples -- for a total of 990,000 couples, or about 2 million adults.

Gallup's estimate is larger than the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey, which in 2013 put the total number of same-sex couples at roughly 727,000. Of this group, more than 250,000 reported they were married.

Separately, analyses by the CDC in the 2013 National Health Interview Survey put the number of same-sex couples at 690,000, of whom about 130,000 were married by the end of the year.

Gallup’s survey also has statistics for “All others.” “All others” account for the estimated 241,000,000 U.S. adults (99.2%) that are not either married with a same-sex spouse or unmarried and living with a same-sex domestic partner.

“At 990,000, Gallup’s estimated number of same-sex married or domestic partner couples in the U.S. is significantly higher than past estimates derived from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS), which in 2013 put the number of same-sex couples at roughly 727,000,” says Gallup. “Of this group, more than 250,000 reported that they were married. The Census Bureau, however, has cautioned that the ACS estimates of married same-sex couples may not be completely reliable as they have determined that a large portion of recorded married same-sex couples may actually be married heterosexual couples who miscoded the sex of one of the spouses."

From "An Estimated 780,000 Americans in Same-Sex Marriages" by Gary J. Gates and Frank Newport, Gallup 4/24/15

These data are based on 80,568 interviews conducted on Gallup Daily tracking from Jan. 28-April 19, 2015. Overall, approximately 0.3% of all respondents during this time period both identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) and said they were married, and in a follow-up question, they indicated that they were married to a same-sex spouse. An additional 0.5% of adults identified as LGBT and reported being in a same-sex domestic partnership.

The main question before the Supreme Court on Tuesday is whether same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry. If the court decides the answer is yes when it issues its ruling (likely in June), this means marriage for same-sex couples would become legal in all U.S. states. If the answer is no, it is possible many states that now allow same-sex couples to marry could reinstitute bans. What reinstating bans on same-sex marriage might mean for currently married same-sex couples is not entirely clear.

A second question before the court is whether the 13 states that do not allow same-sex couples to marry must recognize the marriages of same-sex couples who live in those states but were legally married elsewhere. The Gallup data show that approximately 16% of adults who say they are married to a same-sex spouse, or more than 60,000 couples, live in one of the 13 states that do not legally permit same-sex couples to marry.

Note:  Not a single state has "banned gay marriage!"  Rather, a majority of states have passed laws or added amendments to state constitutions defining marriage as between one man and one woman — which are NOT bans on anything.
