We might as well cover the entire range of whether it affects votes or not.

Are we talking Larry Craig or are we talking a gay person elected then outed who has a record of trying to strengthen gay rights?

I don't see how this poll is the same as the others. Why make it about lying?

Probably because the assumption is that a gay person would have to lie to get elected in the first place.

That then begs for an atheist/religion/lying lying question.

How am I supposed to know (or care) about someone's orientation? All I care about is "actions."

Why not wad them all into one big "What would affect you vote for a candidate?" mega-thread?

Why not start "Would a candidate farting in a bathtub affect you vote?"

You realize this was Groucho talking and his seriosity meter is usually pegged around 15% right?

I think we've had enough "Does a candidate's shoe color affect your vote" polls for now. Let's leave it to the 3 already out there. Closing.
