Poll: Two-Thirds Of Dems Support Gay Marriage
NY Daily News ^ | July 31 2012 | James Arkin

Posted on 07/31/2012 9:00:32 AM PDT by scottjewell

Democrats are poised to add gay marriage to the party's platform for this year's election, and a new poll shows the timing may be perfect.

Nearly two-thirds of Democrats -- 65% -- now support gay marriage, a 15% increase from this time in 2008, according to a new poll from the Pew Research Center.

The partisan divide on gay marriage is also increasing substantially. Though Republicans supporting same-sex marriage increased from 19% in 2008 to 24% in 2012, the gap between Dems and Republicans jumped from 23% in 2004 to 31% in 2008 and is now at 41% in this most recent survey. Independents split the two parties, with just over half -- 51% -- supporting same-sex marriage, a seven point increase from 2008.

President Obama's declaration that he personally supports gay marriage did not have a major effect on the public's opinion, as numbers conducted before and after the president's announcement showed similar support from the general public.

The group Obama may have roused most are liberal Democrats. Dems in general support same-sex marriage at 5% more after Obama's announcement, but liberal Democrats made a 10-point jump in the several months after the announcement, according to the Pew study.

Much of the increasing support of gay marriage may be generational, as significant gaps are apparent between age groups. Those born after 1980 support gay marriage at the highest percentage, 63%. Those born between 1965 and 1980 support at 52%, while those born between 1946 and 1964 sit at 41% and the oldest generation surveyed, those born between 1928 and 1945 support the issue at just 33%.

Since 2004, however, there have been a steady rise in each of those generation's support for gay marriage, with each jumping at least 11% in the past eight years.

Not to mention a few moderates backed slowly away as well.

No one ever wants to touch the reality of homo marriage. Look at those two in the photo. They are freaks.

To the nitwits who support gay marriage mostly do it because it’s the in thing, the cool open-minded movement. Like wearing a pink ribbon or something. They don’t look into the what is behind it, i.e. tow guys (as pictured above) having anal sex.

Eventually their lifestyle will have to go mainstream if they want so-called equal rights. It is then where there will be disgust and pushback.

Try having two guys having sex in a TNT movie see how well its accepted by the tolerant types.

Homophilia is becoming increasingly prevalent in the Rat party. Too many male rats in the cage apparently. Hopefully, public acts of dems rimming and felching won’t occur before the next election.

In addition to making the mistake of assuming the rest of the country shares one's opinions, another mistake is assuming that other people CARE about an issue as much as you do, whether they agree or disagree with you. I see this happen a lot with abortion, as well. I think the average pro-lifer is more befuddled by the great mass of people who don't really care about abortion that much and simply wish the issue would go away, than they are by radical pro-choice people.

The idea that all (or even a significant number) of Democrats who don't support Gay Marriage are going to leave the party is a silly fantasy; many of that 35% who oppose Gay Marriage in a poll may not really care one way or the other about the issue, or that much or think about it a lot, especially when compared to a lot of other issues.

Anyway, the important part of the article (and the trend in all polling on the issue) is that people that oppose Gay Marriage have a window of about 5-10 years to try to get anti-gay marriage bans into more state constitutions before the the core opponents of gay marriage simply start dying of old age in large numbers.

It is because they are Marxists/Communists who believe that the Natural Family is artificially constructed-—that there is no God—no Design in Nature.

Fascist control. It is what the homosexual movement is all about—controlling what you are allowed to think-—started even before the communist pederast-—Harry Hays who was sodomized as a boy-—to destroy the Christian paradigm-—to eliminate God from America—like all Communist Fronts are to destroy our institutions (patriarchy, marriage, capitalism)—(Feminism was founded by Communist Friedan).

Marx wanted the Natural Family destroyed (so children are pliant zombies with only the allowed worldview put in by the State schools and daycares (strangers)). Unnatural acts, like Vice (sodomy) are always promoted because it eliminates God—the Designer of Nature—in the minds of children—like evolution does. Even more so, since sodomy removes Christian Ethics completely and establishes a Justice system which is FORCED to promote Vice and no standards of Right and Wrong.

All cultures which promoted homosexuality had rampant pederasty and slavery—because like all behaviors-—it is a learned one—like the Christian paradigm—which proved superior to all other’s worldview in the history of man-—because INDIVIDUALISM comes from Christianity-—and does not exist in the collective where the State determines what is Right and Wrong and controls what your children are allowed to think.

Wake up-—take back your children and grandchildren’s worldview from the pederasts (public schools and universities and Hollywood—Sandusky-type rapists who not only rape the child actors—they rape the minds of your children exposed to their “Glee” indoctrination and subtle sick “ideas” pushed into your children’s heads-—like in the homosexual-pushing Ice Age and not so subtle—Heather has two mommies.

Allowing these ideas to shape the foundation of children is evil. It destroys logic and reason and God. YOU form the thinking of your offspring-—don’t allow the Sandusky Hollywood and BF Skinner, John Dewey’s to do it....they are sick, twisted, and evil.

Yes, this is why the rainbow agenda is so careful with the images they put out there (although the two in the pic above with the shorts and the bow ties look absurd). But they mainly try for PR purposes to show the family situation (such as the gay married couple with an adopted child in the ABC series “Modern Family”). You’re not supposed to think about the rest (we who know better do, though).

Two thirds of the Democrat voters haven’t got a clue about ANYTHING.

So the acceptance of even the most absurd and astonishing of beliefs is not too much of a stretch for them. They are already hopelessly gullible.

There is no cure for that. First they must be capable of feeling shame, and that particular emotion is totally beyond their ranges.

There is an old adage. When your oponent wants to commit sepoku, give him a knife or a gun to do the job correctly. Now, just imagine what each of these democrat candidates will tell their constituents, when they are asking for their votes? “I WAS FOR IT BEFORE I WAS AGAINST IT” or vice a versa. My main question is: What percentage of the american people are “GAY”? Any one want to know the answer? I will tell you, it’s no larger than 4% or 5% of the population. So, my next question: How can that small a percentage of our population make this much noise? The easy answer is that they control the lamestream media. If they didn’t have that media control, they would be similar to a tree falling in the forest. Yep there will be noise but no one will hear them.

Jesus wept.

Seriously...we have become a nation in practice, if not in word, of dependents. We abort hundreds of children a day, the cultural mouthpieces of our society celebrate sodomy and demand others do the same, and the political leadership punishes those who work hard--and they want to punish them further.

Jesus was and is a spiritual savior, not a politician. I think, though, he would weep at our lost condition and how far we've moved from our roots--roots which protected innocent life, roots that recognized and celebrated His design for the family, and roots that rewarded hard work.

I know I want to weep. But I also want to fight against the current--and believe with the Holy Spirit reviving people's hearts and souls, God's perfect will can be realized in our world.

Don't give up. Recognize the evil, let your heart break as it should, then put on the armor of God--dive into His Word--and stand for the righteousness of His standard.

My grandfather was a traditional, blue-collar, hard-working democrat back in the day. He loved this country and was grateful everyday of his life that he made the boat trip from the “old country” to the new. He and his contemporaries were no-nonsense people who did not tolerate such foolish and deviate behavior.

He’s probably rolling in his grave seeing this continued “sissification” of the democrat party and of America at large.

Opinion polling is flawed on this issue. Look at the state amendments—when they passed, how much they passed by, and if the state was generally liberal or conservative. It’s not as rosy as most folks on the side of actual marriage would like, in my opinion.

“And the third which does not just exited the party...”

The killing of unborn people has been a plank in the dem platform for how long? I reckon the folks who stayed after that one aren’t going to leave in any great numbers over ‘gay marriage.’ I reckon I just don’t see it happening, it would be nice if it does though.

Isn’t this the real question: Which battle ground state will swing Democrat because of the support for gay marriage?

I can’t think any red state will go blue.

Did this help McCaskill? Manchin? Nelson?

With the electoral evidence we have on how people who actually vote feel about this, I think the entire DNC just trod upon the ones dobber with their golf cleats on.
