Ramesh notes a possibly-telling study:

... the generational breakdowns are interesting. The youngest voter group—those 18 to 30—are the least likely to support "the death penalty," "embryonic stem-cell research," "the separation of church and state," "abortion rights," "physician-assisted suicide," or "affirmative action." These voters are, however, the most likely to support "gay rights" and "same-sex marriage."



This comports with my general impressions of "the kids" these days, and of the culture-war landscape going forward: Abortion and the "life issues" in general have staying power; homosexuality, probably not so much.
