    According to this NY Times poll, a majority of Iowa Republicans support either civil unions or full marriage for same-sex couples.

    I'm not sure if this means anything. People will say this in a poll, and still vote for candidates who oppose even the slightest acceptance of gays. I consider it a small sign of progress, although hardly a reason to vote for the Republicans currently running for office.

    If that's the case, perhaps Jon Huntsman (who fully supports "civil unions") will do better in Iowa than people think
