Would America Really Support a Gay President?

According to a new 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll at least 50 % of Americans would support an openly gay president, whereas only 44% said they would opposed.

The poll also surveyed on how people feel about having openly gay men and women serve in other public positions such as Supreme Court Justices, Secretary of States, and professional sports commissioners. Of the nearly 1000 adults surveyed, 62 % said they would support an openly gay Superbowl quarterback, which was the question that received the highest approval approval rating.

So are American attitudes changing? Is all the anti-gay rhetoric about how a majority of Americans don’t support LGBT rights and equality simply hyperbole from the religious right?
