President Obama’s endorsement of marriage equality last week has had little effect on Americans’ views of the issue so far, the latest New York Times/CBS News poll finds.

The poll asked respondents a three-part question: whether same-sex couples should be allowed to legally marry, or if they should be allowed to form civil unions but not marry, or if there should be no legal recognition of a gay couple’s relationship. Nearly 4 in 10, 38 percent, said they should be allowed to marry, similar to recent surveys, but up significantly from just 2 in 10 who said so in 2004.
