Have Republicans given up fighting gay rights?
(Page 2 of 2)
None of this means Republican voters have changed their minds. In fact, polls show declining support for same-sex marriage among self-identified Republicans. A recent Gallup poll found Republican support has dropped to 22 percent, from 28 percent in 2011.
And a recent Pew poll found support slipping from 27 percent to 23 percent over the last year.
Social conservatives will continue to claim some victories. Yesterday, North Carolina voters passed Amendment One, which will bring to 30 the number of states whose constitutions ban same-sex marriage.
But these may be the last gasps of opposition to a cause all but a few Republican lawmakers and conservative leaders seem uninterested in fighting.
