Support for allowing gays in the military is much higher among Democrats than Republicans, but the policy wins support from a majority of Republicans as well. More than eight in ten Democrats say that gays should be allowed to serve; 62 of Republicans and 63 percent of Independents agree with that view.
The poll’s release follows Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut announcement Monday that he would be a sponsor of legislation next week to repeal the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, which has been in place since 1993…

That is great! Everyone needs to get this pushed through and show those who are serving,gay and lesbian alike, that we fully support their service to this country.

I have never had issue with gays being in the military. I think that if someone is able bodied enough to serve their country and they want to then they should be able to serve in some way. As far as DADT policies, I am more comfortable leaving that issue up our leaders in the field as I am not military and my opinion does not reflect a military experience.
