Oof. That's some serious neanderthal action going on. Gays can't serve their country, teach children, get married, or even have civil unions. That's the GOP agenda for gays, which makes the existence of the Log Cabin Republicans that much more of a mystery.
Hmmm...The question did not even address civil unions yet the author has not implied, but concluded that republicans are against civil unions.
It addressed benefits, isn't the point of civil unions to get those ?

A poll that is conducted by a single individual has absolutely ZERO believability with me. There are no internal controls. No meeting between people to go over the methodology and confirm that "yes, this works, we are ready to put our company name on it."
Some polls by "serious pollsters" are obviously biased so it's not much of an argument.
I particularly like when there is some premise in the question, that is not even mentioned when the poll is cited.
Something like : The recession is very bad, millions of people are jobless and homeless, do you think Obama is a good president ?
Then, on Fox, you have the poll saying the question was "Do you think Obama is a good president ?
I'm not following the day to day politics of the US, and I'm not there, but from here the fact that abortion or civil unions or evolution are still important political topics appear very strange for a country like the US.
