    Why would Towleroad quote a ResCom poll as if it were a credible, impartial, legitimate source? ResCom’s polls on marriage are done for the Catholic Church and are outliers from every other legitimate polling company in the UK. They are the ONLY British polling company to claim that the majority of Brits are against marriage equality. It’s as if Gallup did a poll sponsored by the Catholic Church and then a gay site quoted it as if it were unbiased.

    As TampaZeke pointed out, Huffington Post reports that:
    “The latest ComRes poll was commissioned by the Coalition for Marriage, a group that opposes same-sex marriage”.
    It is as reliable as a poll sponsored by NOM and FRC here in the US.

    David Cameron will not deliver on his promise to introduce gay marriage. He is weak, weak, weak. His own party are too divided on the issue with the majority of them being against gay marriage. Cameron is not strong enough to push this through.

    NEVER NEVER NEVER trust a Conservative Party politician. This is the party who was trying to make it illegal to be gay in the mid 1980’s and introduced “Clause 28″ to stop schools even mentioning anything to do with homosexuality in the 1980’s.

    When Tony Blair and the Labour Party introduced gay civil unions, gay immigration reform, gay pension inheritance, gay fostering and gays in the military the Conservative Party voted against them ALL. Cameron and his Conservative Party are NOT our friends. The Labour Party is the ONLY political party in the UK to have EVER done anything good for the LGBT community. No progress will be made on gay marriage until Labour are back in power.

    Romney lost primarily IMO because many hardcore conservative true believers, mostly in the south and evangelical Baptist/Protestant, wouldn’t vote for a Mormon. They stayed away from the polls.

    But, there’s also no question the ‘Southern Strategy’ the Republican have relied on since the 70s is broken. The hardcore southern based party faithful are too out of step with their religious fanaticism with the rest of the country. I don’t thin k this means most people are rabid ‘progressive’ or leftwing, but neither are most rabidly far right.

    As… *ahem*… “interesting” as your opinions always are, in this case there are actual FACTS about who turned out to vote for whom and who didn’t (unless you also believe all exit polling is part of some vast liberal conspiracy?) And the FACT is that if Evangelicals and Southerners had turned out in record numbers for Romney, that would have helped him in exactly one state: Virginia, which did not have enough electoral votes by itself to tip the scales. Now you could argue that more Evangelicals (but not Southerners) would have helped Romney in Ohio and Pennsylvania, but what the exit polls showed was the same thing that the census, ARDA, Gallup, and most other demographic surveys show: old, white, conservative Evangelicals are a dwindling percentage of the electorate.

    While this would be nice, I’m not holding my breath. Cameron seems like a wimp and seems to back down easy whenever adversity comes. Not holding my breath for France either since Hollande seems to be a wimp too. These people are all talk and no action.
