    65% of Democrats support gay marriage.
    51% of Independents support gay marriage.

    Only 24% of Repubs support gay marriage.

    The hate gap between the anti-gay Repub party and the Democrats and the Independents is widening.

    Well, knock me over with a feather!

    But it's important to remember that not all Republicans are anti-gay, any more than all churches are - and painting them all with the same broad brush is the same thing the teabaggers and flat-earth crowd rally to. I wouldn't vote for a Republican for dog catcher, but I try to remember that someday we may have a responsible, adult GOP that can actually enter a rational discussion and represent a grown-up conservative point of view. Now that would be contributing something to our country!

    I hope I live to see the Repub party abandon its anti (gay Latino black woman union etc.) agenda - and I hope I live to see it embrace a rational and coherent vision.

    In the meantime - its disappointing to see that only one in four Repubs support equal rights for gay Americans.

    Whatever it takes to win back the White House, the House of Representatives, AND a fillibuster proof majority in the Senate.

    It will be hammer time!
