    I'd say the article is a masterpiece of deception, but that would enhance its credibility. So, while we are first told that though less than a third of Trump voters want to ban gays from the US,* we are then told in the sub-headline that the "GOP Frontrunner's Supporters Hold Beliefs Straight Out Of The 1950's," thus falsely implying that ALL Trump voters so hold. OTOH, the "story" never states what Trump's own views are on the issue. Hint: his "NY values" are completely at odds with such a position, as confirmed by his recognition that post-Obergefell, "gay marriage is a reality," and that he favors job protection laws for gays, which is hardly surprising considering how many of us work for him at his various properties and businesses, no doubt adding to their cachet and success.

    Then, in classic leftist throw-in-the-kitchen-sink fashion, all kinds of unrelated claims relating to Muslims, the Civil War, and other irrelevantia are made, just to make sure the tar is applied as broadly as the shit is thickly. Again, look at the actual poll questions and answers closely and compare them to how they're consistently misstated in the article. And, not only I but many Americans, gay and straight, support him on limiting Muslim immigration to the US, and a cogent argument can be made that Islam is not a faith deserving I Amdt. protection, but an ongoing, millennia-old fatwah against Western Civilization meriting at the very least close scrutiny and control.

    I'd go on, but comparing the poll, below, to the article says best what a crock this latest lefty blast against a GOPer really is. And these are the kind of people who should "inform" our electoral decisions? Fergiddaboudit!

    The numbers for many of the other questions in the poll are similarly incorrect, apparently as a result of the writer's including "undecideds" wherever convenient to support his false premises. But, perhaps even that charitable explanation forgives too much.

    South Carolina? Boy, that's a surprise!

    Sorry folks, we're already here, and some of your kids are gay. Get over it.

    Metta - can you show how many HILLARY or BERNIE supporters want to "ban gays" from entering the US?

    This Democrat poll seems to have strangely omitted that fact.

    They probably correlated the answer to Question 21 with the answer to Question 2. That would be necessary to produce many of the tables. But your point about the Undecideds is valid. Statistics can be bent in creative ways.

    Q2 The Republican candidates for President are Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Marco Rubio, Donald Trump, or Undecided. If the election was today, who would you vote for?
