Support for gay marriage is higher among young Republicans than overall support. Fifty four percent of Americans support legalizing marriage for same-sex couples, according to Pew. Sixty-nine percent of Democrats and Democrat-leaning independents support same-sex marriage.

Pew surveyed 1,821 adults via phone Feb. 14-23.
