This is a man who doesn’t even know what the acronym LGBT stands for.
He also doesn’t really believe in gay adoption, supports a ban on gays in the military, is worried if his clothing looks too gay, isn’t sure if condoms stop the spread of HIV, thinks same-sex marriage ceremonies are okay as long as they’re just pretend, and has promised right-wing religious groups that he’ll start speaking out more vocally against LGBT causes.
Yet 14% of LGBT adults would still cast a vote for him over Barack Obama. Astonishing.
“Among LGBT adults, 60 percent favor Obama while 14 percent favor McCain. Three percent of LGBT adults favor Barr, while 1 percent choose Nader. Six percent choose ‘other,’ while 17 percent of all LGBT voters are not yet sure which candidate to support — comparable to the general population. Among independents, Obama has a 12-point lead (38 percent to 26 percent), but one-quarter of independents are not sure, 4 percent would vote for Bob Barr and 3 percent for Ralph Nader. The findings also show that 90 percent of African-Americans are voting for Obama, as are six in 10 Latinos. Whites, however, are leaning towards McCain over Obama (40 percent versus 34 percent).”
