  •  Marriage Equality (1+ / 0-)

    The acceptance of gay marriage seemed to explode overnight. It seemed to follow Obama's "evolution" on the issue, but I think it was the social movement among gay people to get each other to come out. A lot of people probably didn't give it a lot of thought before they became more conscious of their friends, family members, co-workers, and neighbors being gay.

    •  Obama "evolved" shortly after polling first (0+ / 0-)

      revealed majority support for Marriage Equality. That was nearly 50 years after Stonewall, with support growing at an average rate of about 1% annually.

      The typical overnight success that was decades in the making.

      Back off, man. I'm a logician.—GOPBusters™
