Golden, Empire choose Clinton Empire

by Jeremy Hooper

200802061448During yesterday's New York and California primaries, exit polls tracked the sexual orientations of those states' Democratic voters. And guess what? Both coasts' gays went for Hillary in BIG ways. Head over to the Empire State Pride Agenda's blog for the complete breakdown:

Gay Democratic voters in New York and California support Hillary [The Agenda]

Interestingly, none of the exit polls seemed to track the voting patterns of the openly gay Republicans who voted in yesterday's elections. Apparently all pollsters with the skills necessary to obtain such data were instead applying their expertise to the searches for needles in haystacks, vegetarians with prime rib in their refrigerators, and Hummer drivers who cite An Inconvenient Truth as their favorite film.

Your thoughts

Jeremy,

In the past two presidential elections between 23% and 25% of gay identified voters chose to vote Republican.

Timothy: Do you have the New York and California breakdowns, so that we can even more fully analyze the accuracy of this jocular play on a gay cliché? ;-)

Kidding of course. Yes, I know gay Republicans do exist. In a way, I was more commenting on popular thought (as evidenced by the fact that Republicans were not even polled on sexual orientation).
