40% Of Americans Say They Have No Gay Friends
Do you have any friends or family members that are gay? If the answer is no, then you are no officially in the minority in America.
According to a CNN poll, 40% of Americans say they have no gay friends or family members, and that number is still shrinking.
Two years ago, 51% said that none of their friends or family were gay, and in the 90’s the vast majority did.
“Attitudes toward sexual orientation have also changed over the same time period,” CNN’s polling director observes. In 1998, most people believed being gay was a choice, while today only a third believe that. A majority—54%—now also support same-sex marriage, with only 42% opposed.
