    Fox News Poll: Most Voters Say Allow Gays to Serve Openly

    According to this poll, Americans favor gays serving openly in the military by more than a 2 to 1 margin. I will now wait for a few to proclaim that FOX News is now part of the elite Liberal media establishment.

    It will be more interesting to see the responses from those who think Fox is always wrong.

    From the link:

    A 61 percent majority is in favor of an open military, while 30 percent are opposed, according to a Fox News national poll.
    I knew more supported than opposed, but this is by a much larger margin than I thought. Wow.

    From the article:

    By a 10-percentage-point margin, voters under the age of 30 (68 percent) are more likely to favor the change than are those age 65 and over (58 percent).
    Just more proof that slowly but surely the anti-gay crowd is eventually going to disappear.

    This is good news. Let's end DADT. And then a year from now laugh about how stupid it was to have it in the first place.

    While this is certainly good news, I am still not very optimistic that President Obama will overturn DADT. I hope he does because I have never understood the need for such a policy.

    Its good to see discrimination being less acceptable in all its forms.

    The guy who owns "Conservapedia" (Andy Schlafly) thinks Fox is "too liberal".

    But for that matter, he thinks that modern translations of the Bible are "too liberal" and he's writing his own version called "The Conservative Bible Project".

    Actually, it's probably more like Fox News wants to get more money by advertising to gay audiences as well. Just goes to show you what kind of an economy we live in...

    Actually...

    If you really want to get an accurate poll of the people it affects VETERANS shouldn't be asked at all. This doesn't affect veterans, IE those already out of the military at all.

    Ask those CURRENTLY serving and those between in the late teens / early 20's that are still of an age (Coming out of high school or coming out of college) that is most likely to enter into the military.

    Asking 60 year old Veterans if they think gays should be allowed in or not is no different in regards to "people it will actually affect" than asking some random 30 year old that never served and never planned to serve. Unless you're saying that 60 year old veterans are suddenly going to be on a ship serving again in the next little bit....
