Public opinion polls about LGBT matters
Single polls concerning same-sex
marriages (SSMs), civil unions, etc.
Throughout this website, LGBT refers to lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender persons and transsexuals.
This essay describes the results of a number of public opinion polls
among U.S. adults, starting in the mid 1990s and extending to the present time.
Some polling companies have also
conducted polls -- often on an annual basis -- in which the same
question is asked repeatedly. The latter are far better at indicating trends. In politics, momentum, as indicated by polling trends, is all important. A chart showing SSM support in each state over the interval 1994 to 2009 is particularly instructive.
