Gallup just asked the question and the numbers are still about where they were three years ago.
Here are some highlights from the new survey:
* 33 percent of Americans think that homosexuals are more than 25 percent of the population
* 53 percent of Americans think that more than 20 percent of the population is gay
No wonder people think same-sex marriage is the most important issue in the world. Even the civil rights struggles of the ’60s only applied to about 12 percent of the population. Same-sex marriage must be at least twice as important if it applies to more than twice as many people.
(Just a reminder: The real number is 1.6 percent. Not that there’s anything wrong with it.)
