    51% of those polled. LOL

    30 States have passed laws restricting same sex marriage. I'm thinking 30 out of 50 is a pretty big percentage, like 60%.

    He messed up big time, remember when you're in that voting booth no one can see how you voted. :)

    Yet, in every state where the people exercise a vote, gay marriage fails usually like it did in North Carolina in double digits. In Colorado which was expected to be a democrat stronghold, not only marriage, but even civil unions were voted down. In no state has the issue been passed by vote. Not one. In Iowa where gay marriage was imposed by activist judges, those judges were successfully voted out of office.

    How can BOTH, that the public supports gay marriage, and consistently votes it down, be true? obama and Romney were neck and neck in swing states until obama voiced his support. Overnight Romney took the lead.

    To continue to believe in the strength of this position is delusional. It flies in the face of reality, and uses bizarre "polls" to support a proposition that has clearly, clearly lost.

    May I correct you. Your information is slightly out of date. It isn't 30 states, it's 38 states. Six states have had same sex marriage imposed either by activist judges or an activist legislature.

    Anybody think gay rights will be the focus of this election?

    Of that 51%, many are not overwhemingly in favor. The 49% however, are not fence sitting.

    There has been a huge shift in public opinion since most of those laws were passed. NC isn't even representative because they had their little "we REALLY, REALLY hate gays" vote during a low turnout primary.

    It remains to be seen whether this will hurt the President going into the fall. I'm thinking it won't, especially among the independents he is courting (who overwhelmingly support marriage equality).

    I fully support the Democrats making the coming election all about gay marriage. Seriously, please... make it about gay marriage.

    Yeah, public opinion hasn't changed significantly over the 10 years that several of those states voted.
