  •  New CBS News poll: 74% favor ending DADT. (0+ / 0-)

    Most Americans Believe Gay Men And Lesbians Should Be Able To Serve In The Military:

    A new CBS News poll shows that 75% of Americans believe gay men and lesbians should be allowed to serve in the military.

    Only 19% are opposed to having gay or lesbian service members. That's about the same percent of the country that believes President Obama is Muslim.

    Interestingly, a smaller group, 64%, supports gay men and lesbians serving "openly" in the military. And among veterans and current service members, 61% support allowing gay people to serve.

    So, why, exactly, is it politically dangerous to end DADT?

    The influence of the [executive] has increased, is increasing, and ought to be diminished.
