A large majority of registered LGBT voters support Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump, according to results of two weeks of the NBC News|SurveyMonkey Weekly Election Tracking Poll. Seventy-two percent of registered LGBT voters support Clinton, compared to 20 percent who support Trump.
On the campaign trail, Trump has touted himself as the better candidate to fight for LGBT rights, but his decision to pick Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his running-mate was seen by some as contradictory to his LGBT-friendly claims.
When Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein are added to the match-up question, Clinton still maintained the lead among registered LGBT voters with 63 percent support. Trump, on the other hand, had 15 percent support. Johnson was not far behind with 13 percent, followed by 8 percent support for Stein.
In past elections, LGBT voters have played an important role. According to results from the 2012 NBC News Exit Polls, 5 percent of voters identified as gay, lesbian or bisexual** and 76 percent voted for Barack Obama. Voters who did not identify as gay, lesbian or bisexual were split—49 percent voted for Obama and 49 percent voted for Romney.
It just goes to prove that stupidity and greed knows no sexual orientation or gender.
Well after a year of mental breakdowns on Twitter, a disasterous CPAC which resulted in GOProud being disinvinted , pissing Andrew Brietbart off and outing Rick Perry’s stratagist. (probably the ONLY halfway decent thing GOProud has ever done for the LGBT Community) Christoper R Barron is stepping down *cough* pushed out *cough* as Chairman of the Auntie Tom Self Loathingfest known as GOFuckYourself GOProud.
Lisa De Pasquale, the former director of Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), will be stepping in as the interim chair of the board of directors, although she says in a release that the day-to-day operations of the organization will be unchanged. She already had been serving on GOProud’s advisory council. According to the release, Barron will remain on the board. Executive director Jimmy LaSalvia tells Metro Weekly that he remains the executive director and will remain a board member…According to the release, the group plans to restructure, including by asking several of its advisory council members to join the board.”
Barron said that he “will continue as the organization’s Chief Strategist and I will remain on the Board as Chairman Emeritus” according to a statement on the press release. Which means he’ll have no power and will continue being the crooked faced talking head on FOX -News
See how evil they are Chrissy? You FINALLY did something right by outing the closeted homo on the Perry campaign team who may not have liked it, but went along with Perry’s heinous anti-gay video and the members of YOUR organization fuck YOU without lube.
You know like Ken Mehlman you can always say you are sorry to the left and go work on a marriage equality initiative and next year OUT magazine will name you one of the TOP 100.
I’m covering all bets that LaSalvia will be gone within 2 months
