OK

Right-wing evangelical operative Gary Bauer thinks it's "ludicrous" to say the public "overwhelmingly" supports marriage equality, or at least that's what he said this weekend on Fox News Sunday.
Quite frankly, the argument that the public is overwhelmingly in favor of same-sex marriage, Chris, is ludicrous.
Well, quite frankly, the fact that supporters of marriage inequality have been reduced to saying the good guys aren't "overwhelmingly" winning tells you how fast this issue is moving away from the forces of darkness. Just a few years ago Republicans won a presidential election by running against equality. Now, they're trying to have a debate over the degree to which they are losing.

But they are losing overwhelmingly. As Chris Wallace pointed out, the latest ABC-Washington Post survey showed 58 percent of Americans support equality. Just 36 percent are bigots like Bauer. A decade ago, those numbers were reversed.

So how did Bauer respond?

The polls are skewed, Chris.
No, the bigots are screwed. Thank God.
