Contributing sentiments towards policy:

54% : "All Americans deserve the freedom to marry the person they love, and this bill is a reflection of the fact that for the majority of Americans -- across all political parties, backgrounds, and in every corner of the country -- the debate over marriage equality is settled."
52% : The Supreme Court on June 25, 2015, issued its landmark Obergefell decision that extended marriage rights to same-sex couples across the country.
37% : Dozens of same-sex couples who sued for marriage rights across the country and their families stood on the steps leading to the Truman Balcony as she and Biden spoke.
36% : Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Gina and Heidi Nortonsmith, one of the plaintiff couples in the lawsuit that led Massachusetts to become the first state in the country to extend marriage rights to same-sex couples in 2004, also spoke at the ceremony.
32% : Biden also reiterated calls for Congress to pass the Equality Act, which would add sexual orientation and gender identity to federal civil rights law, and for an end to anti-LGBTQ violence in the wake of last month's massacre at Club Q in Colorado Springs, Colo., and the proliferation of anti-trans bills across the country.
