So much for the President's support of marriage equality hurting him!

That also explains why the anti-gays in Ohio went to court to find an "activist" judge to block a petition to put marriage equality on the ballot. They're afraid of LOSING a popular vote even in Ohio.

Gotta love the irony of that!!

Ohio voted several years ago on gay marriage, and we voted it down. In fact, it was voted down in the several other states where it was on the ballot.

Polls mean nothing unless they get participants equally from the Democrats, Republicans and Independents. They also mean nothing unless they are from likely voters. But many of the polls so far asked more Democrats than Republicans. Your link to the story doesn't seem to work for some reason. The page won't load, so I don't know how these polls were conducted.

Trying to determine a winner this early in this election by polls is like trying to rely on the seven day weather forecast for the seventh day. Most times it's the exact opposite. Let one or two debates go by before you start relying on polls. They are meaningless now.

We all knew when Obama announced his 'revelation' on same sex marriage a few months ago it was to get another block of the vote. He'll keep that like all his other promises. Not at all.

So why did the anti-gays in Ohio go to court to get an activist judge to attempt to stop another vote to overturn your constitutional amendment banning same-sex couples from marrying??

Because even they know they will likely lose a vote today.

Yeah, that explains why Obama overtunred DADT and also ordered the DOJ not to defend DOMA in court anymore.

He's obviously worried about losing the gay vote to the Republicans....(eyes rolling)....

Are all republicans as stupid as you? No wonder Romney is losing!!

I find it amazing that 50% consider gay marriage an actual issue. Gay marriage is highly unlikely to affect anyone's personal life. This is about zealots trying to shove their medieval beliefs down the throats of normal educated people. They need to grow up and mind their own business!

Frankly, when I look around and see all of the problems associated with heterosexual marriages, I think maybe its time we swept that into the dustbin too.

To be honest, I never heard of it. Why should we go through the expense anyway? We voted on it less than ten years ago. What? We should vote on it every couple of years to keep the gays happy? until it passes?

Name ANY US President who has done MORE for the gay community than President Obama.

You're only making yourself look foolish my making such statements as this one.

If that's what it takes to remove discrimination from the Ohio constitution, yes we should vote on it over and over and over until it's removed.

Whatever the reason, with 8+% unemployment; millions of lost jobs; balooning debt; and almost no growth in GDP at this time the Republicans have no message that inspires the voters to retire Obama.

There is no discrimination. Any two people of the opposite sex can get married in this state be they gay or straight. Also, there is no law that actually bans gay marriage in any of our 50 states. If you and your other find a church that will marry you, nobody from the state or anywhere else can stop you. Get married.

This happened to one of my tenants. She decided to turn gay and marry her girlfriend. They found some religion, had a wedding, and they were married in the eyes of their religion. They even adopted two children last I heard.

The issue is not about allowing or disallowing gay marriage. The issue is whether gays can force a state to recognize their marriage. We the people of Ohio don't want to recognize such marriage, and it's our every right to do so. I've never been married in my life, and I'm not missing out on anything, neither will gay couples.

Sure there is. All Republicans have to do is ask the American people if they want four more years like the past four years? More unemployment, more debt, more idiotic programs, weaker military, more government dependents, and a weakening social security system.

I think the answer is pretty obvious.

I think they have been asking that and they don't like the answer they get.

The people have no confidence in the answers offered by the Republicans. In fact, Republican answers are widely thought to make things worse.
