“Republicans might debate it, but it won’t go anywhere in November.”
Q: With conservative candidates visiting Kim Davis, will gay marriage return as a 2016 issue?
REPUBLICANS (84 VOTES)
“Below the radar, but the culture wars continue.”
“Democrats will pound on it. GOP will probably fumble the response.”
“Unfortunately for the GOP, yes.”
“The Supreme Court’s essentially political decision will likely have decades of political ramifications, just as Roe v. Wade has.”
“It has. Virtually every candidate has been asked about it and has had to answer. Both sides see political advantage in the issue. End of day, it’s just food for both bases. Not determinative.”
“Evangelicals will remember, but gay marriage is fading rapidly as an issue. It won’t be mentioned directly in the 2016 general.”
“Not decisive issue in primary. Most candidates support traditional marriage and individual religious freedom.”
“Not even Christian conservatives think this will be a significant caucus issue in 2016.”
“Sure as hell hope not.”
“That ship has sailed, the Supreme Court has spoken. Dems will try to stir the pot, but the Republican nominee will demur.”
“90 percent of the country has moved on on this issue, either because they support gay marriage or don’t oppose it.”
