“The Polls Are Skewed”: Where Have We Heard This Before?

That graph reflects not only the Washington Post-ABC poll, but pretty much every other poll on the issue of same-sex marriage.

Wait… some evangelical has his hand up.  Yes, Mr. Bauer?


Right-wing evangelical operative Gary Bauer thinks it's "ludicrous" to say the public "overwhelmingly" supports marriage equality, or at least that's what he said this weekend on Fox News Sunday.

Quite frankly, the argument that the public is overwhelmingly in favor of same-sex marriage, Chris, is ludicrous.

Well, quite frankly, the fact that supporters of marriage inequality have been reduced to saying the good guys aren't "overwhelmingly" winning tells you how fast this issue is moving away from the forces of darkness. Just a few years ago Republicans won a presidential election by running against equality. Now, they're trying to have a debate over the degree to which they are losing.

But they are losing overwhelmingly.

And arguing that all the polls are "skewed" or somehow out of whack?

That's sooooooo Election 2012.
