Poll: Majority backs same-sex marriage

(CNN) - As the Supreme Court gears up to announce decisions Wednesday on two high-profile cases involving same-sex marriage, a recent poll indicates a growing number of Americans support the right for same-sex couples to legally marry.

According to the CNN/ORC International survey, a majority–55%–of Americans back same-sex marriage, up 11 percentage points from 2008. The same poll indicates 44% oppose the issue.
