Despite support from conservative gay group GOProud, real estate mogul and possible presidential hopeful Donald Trump said he thinks gay people should not be able to marry, nor should they be allowed to enter into civil unions.
Trump told The Des Moines Register last week that while his "attitude on it has not been fully formed," his current stance is "no and no" when it comes to extending any kind or rights to gay couples.
Trump is evaluating the Republican field as the race for 2012 heats up in Iowa, one of the early primary states used to gauge the temperature of voters. Iowa is also one of the few states in the U.S. to have marriage equality.
