Everything can be made political in a democracy. That doesn't change reality and science.
This issue is larger than the US. The voters in the US have a limited influence on what the rest of the world does where science is concerned. If tomorrow the entire population of the US votes to reject the Theory of Evolution, scientific investigation in this area will go on and it will progress in the rest of the world. Some in the US may assert this is all a waste of time and effort. Based on the history of scientific and technological progress in the past few hundred years, and the track record of the ever present opposition to it, I wouldn't bet they'd be right.

Yeah, well now we see the truth beginning to come out. It is a "worldwide" political issue isn't it?
