Advice from Indiana Republicans on gay marriage fight: Walk away [View all]

But the very last section notes that the focus group was also asked about the fight over “religious liberty” and gay marriage. You’ll remember that Indiana had a meltdown over the issue earlier this year – which caused a similar effort in Georgia to be shelved. Here’s what Hart and Hunt wrote:

In light of the myriad other pressing issues facing the country, when asked which issues they believe Republicans should stay quiet about and just move on from, Republican primary voters decisively choose gay marriage.

Eight in 12 focus group participants say they want Republicans to “just shut up” about same-sex marriage. In a state that has seen its share of controversy around gay marriage, these Republican primary voters say we have so many other bigger problems to fix, such as healthcare, terrorism, and the economy.

There is a sense that for the most part it does not affect their lives directly and there is no point in arguing about it anymore.
