UNITED STATES, May, 2012 (RNS): President Obama's recent endorsement of same-sex marriage opened a torrent of speculation on what his newly enunciated position will mean politically, but the latest polls indicate the public largely backs his views and that his stance may not hurt him at the ballot box.

A Gallup poll in early May showed that by a 54-42 percent margin, American adults consider gay and lesbian relations "morally acceptable." The level of approval has grown steadily since 2002, when it stood at 38 percent, so much so that Gallup considers the current situation "the new normal" in U.S. public opinion.
