From the LA Times: 

A poll by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, released last week and conducted in mid-March, found that 14% of Americans say they have changed their minds about same-sex marriage. Roughly a third of them told pollsters it was because they know someone — a friend or family member or other acquaintance — who is gay.

But in the clip below, Ryan Anderson from the Heritage Foundation and author of the book, “What is Marriage?” disagrees.
