I don’t see him losing support from the black community. Wasn’t it in California in 2008, where the blacks by a big margin voted to ban gay marriage, but yet voted for Obama?
His core are single issue voters who don’t care about other issues. They use some sort of self-deluding excuse to dismiss whatever might otherwise concern them. (”oh, you know, he’s lying about that...”)
Yes, but he was against gay marriage in 08.
