RoadPolitico: Gay marriage will destroy the Republican Party. "Polling consistently shows that independents, younger voters and women—all of whom used to routinely vote Republican in presidential contests—are now more often than not reliable Democrat voters. They are also pro-gay rights and same-sex marriage, especially younger voters. Unless Republicans begin to win some of them back with policies of social tolerance, they will simply no longer be in contention in presidential elections. Slavish devotion to right-wing social policies is the road to oblivion on the national stage."

  1. "Gay marriage will destroy the Republican Party."

    Sounds delectable.

  2. So I see as recently as March Mickey Rourke's Gareth Thomas biopic is still a go. He's also writing the script.

    Terrible casting. Too old and too much plastic surgery.

  4. If more and more young people are turning democrat, why are so many republicans still winning congress and senate seats? Something does not add up here.

  5. @JOHNNY - Because of Gerrymandering. There are House seats that cannot be won by the Democrats because the districts have been drawn unfairly by States that are Republican controlled (the Dems used to do the same thing, just not as drastically). Until the demographics of those Districts change it will be hard for the Democrats to take a sizeable lead in the House. They may win it back but it will be harder. The Senate is easier to hold because all you have to do is get you voters to turn out because the votes are statewide. The other thing that could happen is that Democrats take the sstates back and redraw the Districts to be more fairly representative.
