George Will: ‘The Opposition To Gay Marriage Is Dying’: VIDEO

Georgewill

More polls are showing popular opinion shifting toward marriage equality. Public Policy Polling found majorities in Oregon (54%) and New Jersey (53%) and a near majority in Illinois (47%) support extending marriage to same-sex couples. In Illinois, 58% of people under 45 years old say yes to gay weddings. Meanwhile, Politico found 40% of Americans support letting gays and lesbians marry. Again, young people are leading the way.

From today’s Politico survey: “A full 63 percent of
18-to-29-year-olds backed marriage…It dropped off to 36 percent support among both
30-to-44-year-olds and 45-to-59-year-olds. Only three in 10 seniors supported gay marriage.”

Asked about such numbers and the Supreme Court’s decision to hear two cases on marriage equality, journalist George Will broke it down like this: all the seniors brought up pre-gay rights are kicking the bucket.

“There is something like an emerging consensus,” he said on ABC News’ This Week. “Quite literally, the opposition to gay marriage is dying. It’s old people.”

Watch video of Will summing it up AFTER THE JUMP.
