CMI Election Poll:  90% of Gays and Lesbians Vote for Barack Obama and Helped the President Win Close Election

cmThe Community Marketing & Insights (CMI) pre-election poll showed that 90% of gay men and lesbians voted for Barack Obama.

LGBTs represent an estimated 5% of United States voters and an overwhelming majority supported the coalition that produced Barack Obama’s victory. 90% support for Obama was seen in all Battleground States and the percentage was similar to the level that Obama received from the African American community.

Demonstrating the importance of the election, 95% of LGBTs indicated that they would vote in the election and 41% indicated that the had already voted before election day.

Final data indicated that 90% supported Barack Obama, 6% for Mitt Romney and 4% a third party candidate.

We know HOW to say "Thank You" to the ONLY President that ever cared about our Civil Rights.

Well, that was to be expected since Obama approved the 'same sex marriage'. Of course he'll have the support of the gay community although he may lost a lot of voters in the Christian community as well. But great marketing nonetheless. Congratulations to Pres. Obama for winning his second term.
