    Young people traditionally don't vote....In 2008 Hussein Obama came out with all this change crap that did not take place.......He just made it 10 times worse.....People will remember that...

    I don't know if folks are thinking that so much as the notion that those groups will now have somewhat lowered turnout.

    Even this scaled down version of Navy's post is wishful thinking. Would Romney's base go against him on a single issue that doesn't even directly affect them?

    Its called religion and the sanctity of marriage that these groups believe in...........It will make a huge difference whether your in denial or not......Ohio and Pa. but have huge religious populations........They are 2 battleground states that Hussein Obama must win......He won't do that now.......Hussein Obama actually carried North Carolina in 2008, he won't now........

    Again I say Thank you Hussein Obama.

    No, I already know what your gut tells you, and it's wishful thinking. Do you have, I dunno, actual polls, speeches by important minority leaders to their followers/congregations to not vote for Obama because of this, anything but your gut?

    You're pretty far to the right there, Navy, so your idea of what constitutes a "moderate" is a bit skewed, so let me tell you that a statistically insignificant number of moderates will actually be influenced by this one issue.

    Don't bother to re-think it. If you do, you are just falling for Obama's lie. He can say he supports it, but his actions prove otherwise. And he won't be pushing for legislation to change anything.

    He actually had some gays who were not satisfied with him being wishy-washy on this issue. They considered it a matter of not doing enough for them. So by coming out as supporting same sex marriage, Obama very possibly brought in more voters that will vote for him rather than either a third party or just staying home.

    It is as least as possible as him losing some of those voters you claim just because of this. Those voters knew that he at the very least did not support DOMA, which means he wants at least some recognition for same sex marriages.

    I sincerely doubt it has gained him any measurable amount of voters. I think it will probably increase his funding from the lefter donors.
