WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – According to CNN, support for legal same-sex marriage is at an all-time high.

A new national poll was conducted within the past week. The survey, which was put on in part by the Washington Post, showed 59 percent of those asked say they favor allowing gay or lesbian couples to wed. That is up two percentage points from a poll conducted in the summer of 2013.

It also appears to be the highest level of support for gay marriage in any non-partisan, live operator national survey.

Thirty-four percent said they oppose legal same-sex marriage. That number is down six points from last summer.
