Republicans made significant inroads among gay and lesbian voters in the midterm elections, with national exit polls for the House races showing that
the GOP captured 31 percent of the vote of this group this year, compared to 19 percent in 2008.
Democrats' share of the gay vote rose from 75 percent in 2006 to 80 percent in 2008 and then dropped to 68 percent in 2010.
I think this is very interesting news considering that liberals are always at gay rights rallies.
My interpretation of this is that the Democrat's strategy this middterm election was not being liberal but just anti-conservative, it wasn't being
progressive but just being anti-republican, it wasn't about issues it was all soap operas. If you look at all the slanderous, character
assassinations and gossip infested campaign ads from the Democratic Party it was easy to see that they had no intention of speaking about issues.
The question is of course, why did they try to avoid such issues like the plague?
But despite liberals being pro-gay, gays didn't care about social issues as much as the liberals did.
It's almost like liberals were trying to hop on a pro-gay train when gays were like "Don't you have anything better to do.... like worry about the
economy? There are gays in the economy too you know? Why don't you go hop on that train you idiot"
Personally I am a conservative person but as far as parties are concerned i'm more of an indepandant.
With that said, I think that the right does sometimes pander to it's supporters with talks of religion, but the left and their talks of social
issues, well that's another ballgame because the lefties are way bigger suckers for this type of pandering.
The economy is falling, mobsters have taken over washington, bankers sucking us dry.... but let's go join that pro-gay rights rally accross the
This is what caused the demise of the Dems this middterm election, they did not focus on the issues whatsoever.
The left-wing media.. oufffff, that was just partisan bickering left and right, top to down.. take no prisoners.
No focusing on the issues whatsoever.
It's quite a phenomena to see that gays aren't falling for it when liberals worship the ground they walk on almost.
