    They will never be onboard. Majority rules.

      There is such a serious lack of any basic consensus on what kind of society Americans want in general that this 25% can always get their way on issues like this.

      When polled a majority of American don't care about this. That means that they don't oppose it, but they are really not prepared to go to the mat for it. The number of people prepared to seriously fight to get it repealed is probably 25% or less.

      That in a nut shell is why the Democratic leadership makes a symbolic gesture and then nothing really ever actually happens.
