(CNN) - A national poll released Monday indicates that aRepublican obstructionists in the Senate have decided not to listen to us:
majority of Americans say they favor allowing gays to serve openly in the armed
According to the poll, 58 percent of the public approves of
allowing homosexuals to serve openly, with 27 percent saying they are opposed.
Newser – The military's controversial "don't ask, don't tell" policy on gays isn't going away anytime soon, predicts South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham. "There is no groundswell of opposition coming from our military. I don’t think there’s anywhere near the votes to repeal DADT on the Republican side,” said Graham, who backs the law barring gays from serving openly in the military. “I think in the lame-duck session DADT isn’t going anywhere.”
