Fourteen percent more Pennsylvanians support gay marriage than 18 months ago, according to Public Policy Polling survey results released Wednesday.

The poll, by the left-leaning group, found state voters almost evenly divided, with 45 percent saying it should be legalized and 47 percent saying it should not. In November 2011, 36 percent of commonwealth voters in the poll backed the idea, while 52 percent opposed it.

Support for same-sex civil unions drew74 percent in the state poll, with 24 percent opposing it.
