This poll from (suprise) 60 Minuest and Vanity Fair is a perfect example of how you can get people to say whatever you want them to say, as long as you phrase the question correctly. The idea that more than half of this country would accept a gay president is, of course laughable, when you consider the number of general state votes that have rejected gay marriage. It also speaks to the fact that people generally give the politically correct answer to polling question (as the Dems were so fond of pointing out when Obama was running). If normal sexual preferrences didn't matter to voters, we certainly would have had more than one unmarried CIC in the past 234 years.

I’m so sick of “gay” this and “gay” that and “gay” everything.

You’d think that 95% of the population was gay or something. Sheesh; enough already.

Oh, just stop!!!!

There are 300 million "normal" people in America, but the only ones we hear about are the one-offs. It's just plain stupid!

Worse yet, how “scientific” was this poll? 60 Minutes and Vanity Fair are not exactly the epitome of fair and balanced, IMHO.

My guess is they got 100 drag queens in SF for this poll, given the money required to live in that hell-hole.

60 Minutes/Vanity Fair

Stopped right there. I know an agenda driven push poll when I see one.

What difference is race, age , sexual orientation or sex? The left cares about that crap. The focus should be strictly on a candidates governing philosophy. If Ronald Reagan, Bill Buckley or Barry Goldwater were re-incarnated as homo, would conservatives support him?

"...they'd have no problem with a gay commander in chief..."

I don't think he's done a very good job so far.

How about an African-born, Muslim, socialist, megalomaniacal bi-sexual for Prez? Heaven forbid.

These fools sound like they’re talking about a collection of Pipka Santas or Hummels.

What’s the fascination with labels?

People, it’s people, character and abilities...
