GOProud: Gay Voters Propelled GOP Wins


Gay conservative group GOProud points to exit polls showing that the Republican party captured almost one-third of the gay vote in House races as evidence of a gay affinity for the Tea Party.

GOProud hailed the data as proof of gay voters' role in helping the Republican party achieve historic gains on the way to its House takeover. By extension, the evidence also suggests that many gay Americans embrace the Tea Party's limited government message, claims the group.

"According to CNN," says a statement from GOProud, "31% of self-identified gay voters supported Republican candidates for the U.S. House. This number is a dramatic increase from the 19% GOP House candidates won among gay voters in 2008."

"The gay left would have you believe that gay conservatives don't exist," said GOProud executive director Jimmy LaSalvia. "Now we see that almost a third of self-identified gay voters cast ballots for Republican candidates for Congress in this year's mid-term. This should be a wake-up call for the out-of-touch so-called leadership of Gay, Inc. in Washington, D.C., which has become little more than a subsidiary of the Democrat Party."

A GOProud television advertising campaign for Republican House and Senate candidates this year marked the first time a national gay group aired a television ad against Democrats, says the group.
