A Surprising Note on All Things Political and Gay...

Here is a graph showing the shift, either more Republican or more Democrat, among self identified groups of voters.

What is most interesting, to my mind, is that there was a marked shift away, by percentage, from the Democrats, to the Republicans...among the gays. Not really surprising to me, that. We had the most gay-friendly Republican ticket in history. But also of note is the fact that Obama did several things to hurt himself among the gay community.

That's a very interesting point. It always seemed strange to me that homosexuals wouldn't be single issue voters. I know if I was being systematically oppressed, I would probably vote based largely on that issue.

I'd love to see some more information on this phenomena.
