Sixty-two percent of Pennsylvanians support marriage equality.

According to a The Morning Call/Muhlenberg College poll of 500 adults conducted in late November and early December, 62 percent of respondents support same-sex marriage, while 32 percent remain opposed.

Support has increased dramatically over the past decade, when only 35 percent of Pennsylvanians said that gay couples should be allowed to marry.

“You rarely see such a change in such a relatively short period of time,” Chris Borick, director of the Institute of Public Opinion at Muhlenberg College, told The Morning Call.

Pennsylvania joined the states where gay couples are allowed to marry, currently 35, earlier this year after a federal judge struck down the state's ban on gay marriage.

“More Pennsylvanians are seeing it as a settled issue,” said Adrian Shanker, founder and executive director of a proposed LGBT community center in Allentown. “They're realizing that the sky didn't fall, that it didn't really affect their lives unless they are LGBT or have a close family member or friend who is.”
