CBS News Poll: 58% of Americans continue to support marriage equality

According to a new poll from CBS News:
As they have for more than three years, a majority of Americans say it should be legal for same-sex couples to marry. A year after the Supreme Court ruled that the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right to same-sex marriage, 58 percent of Americans support the legalization of same-sex marriage, while 33 percent are opposed. As recently as July 2012, the public was divided on the issue, with 46 percent favoring and 44 percent opposed.

Support for same-sex marriage cuts across many demographic groups. Majorities of men (56 percent) and women (60 percent), and most whites (59 percent) and African Americans (55 percent) favor it.
