    that Virginia is more socially conservative than Wisconsin, seeing as how a recent poll found Virginians essentially split down the middle on marriage equality...not to mention that Virginia's gay marriage ban passed by a smaller margin than Wisconsin's the same very year...well, a progressive lesbian, perhaps, but how much overlap is there between those who will never vote for a progressive and those who will never vote for a lesbian? A lot, I imagine.

    •  Nate Silver has Wisconsin 4.5 points to Virginia's (0+ / 0-)

      left on the issue.  But I do think lesbian, atheist, and Muslim are the three groups that still couldn't get to 50% in a national election, at least not while the parties remain in their present forms.

      •  so (0+ / 0-)

        you think more people support gay marriage than would vote for a lesbian?

          •  don't agree (0+ / 0-)

            IIRC available evidence didn't show a majority supporting gay marriage in WI last year. and do you think that 59% of people in CA-41 support gay marriage? (unless you specifically mean a lesbian as opposed to an LGBT person in general.)
