    Yes, but there's a third possibility as well, isn't there? Legal SS partnerships.
    Your poll records the permissiveness by the American people of gay rights.
    This is where the disconnect in these polls occur: people assume permissiveness of gay rights equals SSM.

    Marriage is a legal SS partnership in many states and now federally recognized.

    Sure, and even in the polls where civil unions are mentioned the largest % favor marriage.

    There is no SSM in more states than states with SSM.

    Not the 2012 poll introduced by, I believe, Captain Courtesy. Show me a poll (I won't ask for a propensity) where it's so. Where SS partnerships is a viable choice.

    "Which comes closest to your view? Gay couples should be allowed to legally marry. OR, Gay couples should be allowed to form civil unions but not legally marry. OR, There should be no legal recognition of a gay couple's relationship."

    And in the history of this country, there, at one time, were more states that banned interracial marriage than those that allowed it.

    Civil unions with all the rights and responsibilities of marriage. For the same reason I wouldn't demand the Boston Red Sox play all their home games in Yankee Stadium.
