Survey: Support for same-sex marriage in America drops for the first time since 2015
By Laura Harris // Mar 19, 2024

A survey by the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) finds that Americans' support for same-sex marriage has declined for the first time since 2015, when the Supreme Court's Obergefell v. Hodges decision guaranteed same-sex couples the fundamental right to marry.

The PRRI survey, aided by the research tool American Values Atlas, was conducted among 22,465 adults from March to December 2023. It found a two-point drop in support for same-sex marriage, from 69 percent to 67 percent, between 2022 and 2023. This marks the first notable decrease in support since the period between 2014 and 2015, when support dipped from 54 to 53 percent.

Moreover, the survey also shows a decline in support for non-discrimination protections for the LGBTQ community. From a peak of 80 percent in 2022, it declined to 76 percent in the 2023 survey. This marks the first notable decrease in support for the LGBTQ community since 2018.

"Our survey shows that support for LGBTQ rights has dipped slightly from 2022 to 2023, although the vast majority of Americans continue to endorse anti-discrimination protections for LGBTQ Americans and the rights of same-sex couples to marry," said PRRI CEO Melissa Deckman. "The growing partisan divide on these issues shows the effect of the continuous use of LGBTQ identity and LGBTQ rights as a wedge issue in our nation’s culture wars."

Drop in support likely due to growing resistance against LGBTQ normalization

The drop in support is likely the result of the growing resistance against LGBTQ normalization, which can be associated with what some describe as "LGBT fatigue."

For instance, in the past few years, far-left activists have kept on promoting LGBTQ "pride," so-called "gender-affirming" care and child mutilation in public, regardless of age, in educational and workplace settings. School districts in various states, including Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin have facilitated secret gender transitions for students while keeping their parents uninformed.

Similarly, companies are using transgender people, who usually turn out to be pedophiles and sex offenders, to advertise their products.

These ongoing far-left efforts to push transgender ideology across various media platforms, schools and workplaces, as well as the perceived imposition of these ideas on the public, especially children, despite the dangers and risks involved, have contributed to public disillusionment. (Related: Corporate media hypes Pope Francis’ support of SAME-SEX MARRIAGE.)

More conservative states are now starting to ban transgender procedures for minors due to the alarming and increasing number of minors identifying themselves as transgender and believing in the idea of "wrong gender."

To date, 22 states have already outlawed gender-affirming surgeries based on the data of the Equality Federation, an advocacy accelerator working alongside state-based LGBTQ+ organizations. Arkansas was the first in 2021, holding doctors responsible if they do these surgeries on kids.

Other states like Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, North and South Dakota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia have similar laws, each with its own rules. Meanwhile, the Republican-led South Carolina House approved a ban on gender-affirming care for transgender minors in January and is soon headed to the state Senate.
