    • Gallup survey, based on interviews with more than 121,000 people, showed that 3.4% of U.S. adults were lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT)
    • Highest proportion in black community, at 4.6%, followed by Asians (4.3%), Hispanics (4%) and Caucasians (3.2%)
    • Poll found 44% of LGBT adults were Democratic, and 13% Republican
    • Seventy one per cent of LGBT registered voters support President Barack Obama in this year's election, and 22 per cent support Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

    EXCLUSIVE: Richard Grenell hounded from Romney campaign by anti-gay conservatives

    All kinds of people vote against their own self interests.

    Rick Santorum called Republicans stupid and they cheered. Mitt Romney said he wants to cut education. His plan is to bring immigrants here with degrees because it's cheaper than trying to teach Republicans. Hope you guys like having bosses with accents. Well, overseers. Minimum wage, no health care, no dental, no education. Only Republicans could fight for that and call it "freedom".

    You know what I find most interesting about this is the political clout this 3.4% minority has.

    3.4% of the US population is lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, and every presidential debate includes questions asked about them.
    4.8% of the US population is Asian, but no presidential debates include questions about them.
    It is estimated that 6.4% of the US population is mentally handicapped, they don't come up as a subject of presidential debate very often.

    And it's not only presidential debates, you can also include other political discussions, news stories and protests.

    Because they are talented, they work hard and have a lot of money. Their creativity leads the culture in many areas. Not like right wingers. Dumb fucks who put a magical creationist on the National Science Committee. That's a bitch slap across the face of America.

    You know, you can find organizations made up of gay scientists and engineers. I couldn't find one made up of Republican Scientists. I bet there are more gay scientists coming out of that tiny percent than Republican scientists when Republicans make up half the nation. Wanna bet ten thousand?

    Really? Is that the route you want to take when talking about Asians and the mentally handicapped?
    I pointed out specific things that people have have no control over (their Asian race, or their mental handicap), and you want bring up political persuasion. Essentially calling both those groups republican dumb fucks.
    Quit being a troll.

    Would you like to hazard a guess as to why this minority gets this amount of attention?

    Or, are you just whining tonight?
