Poll: Record high favor legal same-sex marriage

An ABC News/Washington Post survey released Wednesday indicates that 59% of Americans favor allowing gay or lesbian couples to legally wed. That's up two percentage points from an ABC News/Washington Post poll from last summer and appears to be the highest level of support ever recorded in any non-partisan, live operator national survey.

Obama: Democrats “sleepy” during midterms

President Barack Obama is hoping to send a wake-up call to “sleepy” Democrats this November.

Obama called out his party for what he says it’s lacking during midterm elections.

“It’s something about midterms. I don’t know what it is about us. We get a little sleepy, we get a little distracted. We don’t turn out to vote. We don’t fund campaigns as passionately,” the president said during a Democratic fundraiser in Virginia on Tuesday night.
