A new Daily Kos/Research 2000 delivers some extreme results on how self-identified Republicans feel about gay rights. Vast majorities of Republicans said they do not feel that gays and lesbians should be allowed to serve in the military, marry, receive federal or state benefits, or teach in public schools.
According to the Daily Kos, the poll was conducted by calling 2,003 self-identified Republicans nationwide between January 20 and 31. Notwithstanding the wisdom of putting gay rights up for debate in a poll, here are the relevant questions and results:
Should openly gay men and women be allowed to serve in the military?
Not Sure 19%
Should same-sex couples be allowed to marry?
Not Sure 16%
Should gay couples receive any state or federal benefits?
Not Sure 21%
Should openly gay men and women be allowed to teach in public schools?
Not Sure 19%
