Fundamentalists, GOP surprised at voter attitude

Apparently, the people pushing the FMA are surprised that the American people aren't up in arms about gay marriage.

I don't know... Perhaps it's because Americans usually don't care what other people do in their personal lives, as long as it doesn't affect them directly. Gay marriage matters most to:

1) the LGBTI community (go figure)


2) busybodies who can't stand seeing people they disapprove of being happy or getting benefits of any sort

Most Americans are more concerned about the war, the economy in the toilet, the war, the loss of their privacy, the war, the stripping of environmental safeguards, the war, Big Business getting a free hand, the WAR.... you get the picture.

CNN polls show that only 13% of people surveyed haven't made up their minds about the presidential candidates. Perhaps the GOP needs to find another hobbyhorse, since their fundie constituency wasn't going to go Democrat anyway.

I noted in the Reuters article that, for the 'average' voter, gay marriage ranked at the bottom of the list, just above Bush's proposed mission to Mars. I think the latter would have generated more enthusiasm if Bush had volunteered for the journey.
