Poll shows support for same-sex ‘marriage’ dropping

A new polling shows that support for same-sex marriage in the United States has fallen – for the first time in nearly a decade.

A report originally published in the Washington Stand cites results from the Public Religion Research Institute, which released the American Values Atlas Tuesday.

It showed that support for same-sex marriage dropped from 69% to 67% from 2022 to 2023.

The report noted the last time there was a drop, when it went from 54% to 53%, was almost 10 years ago.

“Among Republicans, support for same-sex marriage dropped from 49% in 2022 to 47% in 2023,” the report said, noting that still was 12 points higher than in 2014.

“There was also a similar drop in support among independent voters, from 73% in 2022 to 71% in 2023. Support for same-sex marriage has risen among Democrats from 65% in 2014 to 82% in 2023,” the report noted.

The decline appeared to cover most religious groups, with support among American Catholics down from 75% to 73% from 2022 to 2023. Hispanic Catholics were down from 75% to 68%.

Other categories currently: Mormons, 47%; Hispanic Protestants, 44%; Muslims, 40%; white evangelicals, 37% and more.

The polling shows that a majority of Americans still support “LGBTQ nondiscrimination policies,” but that support also was dropping. The poll said 80% of Americans supported nondiscrimination policies in 2022, but only 76% did in 2023.

Republican support there was down from 66% to 59%.

Also revealed was that 52% of LGBTQ community members consider themselves religiously unaffiliated. “About a third (35%) of those who identify as LGBTQ also identify as Christian, but the institute noted that those who reject ‘Christian nationalism’ are ‘nearly unanimous (93%) in their support’ for both same-sex marriage and nondiscrimination policies,” the report explained.

“It’s interesting to me that this very sophisticated survey funded by pro-LGBT advocacy organizations managed to have a series of questions related to ‘Christian nationalist’ support for/opposition to LGBT rights or protections,” Meg Kilgannon, senior fellow at Family Research Center, told the Stand.

“That’s classic framing by the Left, casting Christians—or simply people who don’t think men can marry other men—as the odious troublemakers. The longer we live with the effects of sexual liberation, the less people will like it.”

WND SPECIAL REPORT – “IT’S TRUMP VS. SWAMP PSYCHOPATHS”: From the Biden administration’s enthusiastic support for amputating body parts of troubled children, to its obsession with bringing as many millions of illegal aliens, terrorists and Chinese soldiers as possible into America, it is increasingly clear that many of this nation’s current leaders are, to put it plainly, stark raving mad.

Indeed, psychiatric experts are finally documenting how the symptom profiles of scary conditions like “Borderline Personality Disorder” and “Narcissistic Personality Disorder” PERFECTLY MATCH today’s top leaders.

One groundbreaking peer-reviewed study published in 2023 documents how left-wing extremism is closely associated with “psychopathic tendencies.” Likewise, retired psychiatrist Brad Lyles, M.D., explains how “one way of understanding the increasingly outlandish beliefs and behaviors of the left is through the lens of Borderline Personality Disorder.” And one of America’s top forensic psychiatrists, Lyle Rossiter, M.D., described Barack Obama’s mental state as “Malignant Narcissistic Personality Disorder.”

Consider a typical description of sociopathy: “Sociopaths are often well-liked because of their charm and high charisma, but they do not usually care about other people. They think mainly of themselves and often blame others for the things that they do. They have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly. They seldom feel guilt or learn from punishments.” Remind you of anyone?

From Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to their presidential Cabinet – including Attorney General Merrick Garland, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra – all of these people “have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly.”

But it’s not just Democrat leaders. Multiple surveys now show how rank-and-file Democrats are TWICE as likely to be diagnosed with a mental disorder as Republicans – from depression to bipolar disorder to schizophrenia to narcissistic personality disorder. All this and much more is stunningly laid out in the March edition of WND’s critically acclaimed Whistleblower magazine, “IT’S TRUMP VS. SWAMP PSYCHOPATHS.” Don’t miss it – you will see the whole political-cultural-spiritual war raging in the U.S.A. in a whole new light.
