Republicans should really pay attention to these numbers. Like some other minorities, the percentage of gays and lesbians is increasing in this country. Although with gays and lesbians it is not an actual increase, but just a perception since it is actually an increase of gays and lesbians that come out of the closet. The upcoming election is expected to be close and if Romney is the loser there is a good chance it will close enough that the difference could be less than the amount of glbt people that voted for Obama. And if Romney does lose, you will see the same grumblings from Republicans in the past, that they picked someone no conservative enough, instead of owning up to the fact that the party continues to not appeal to minorities.
