The issue of same-sex marriage and gay families marching through American institutions is also marching through the Republican Party, at least among the youngest numbers of Republicans.

A new poll from the Pew Research Center reports that only 39% of Republicans overall support same-sex marriage; however, the youngest generation, the so-called Millennials aged 18-29, support same-sex marriage by 61%.

The Millennials are the only GOP cohort to show majority support for same-sex marriage. Their older siblings in Generation X (30-49) support it by only 43%. Their baby boom parents (50-64) support it by even less at 30%, and their Silent Generation grandparents (65+) show only 22% support for the issue.

All this leaves open the possibility that Republican opposition to same-sex marriage may fade with time.

The Democrats are almost completely united in support for same-sex marriage, with 66% support overall, 77% support among Millennials, 71% support among Gen X, and 66% support among baby boomers. Even their Silent Generation supports it by 62%, higher than GOP support among Millennials.

Taking a look at the issue of gays raising children, 26% of Millennial Republicans say it is a good thing with, 18% going the other way. Among Gen X-ers only 15% say it is a good thing, with 47% saying it is bad, and among Silents only 3% say good while 66% say bad.

Interestingly, only 36% of Democrats overall say gays raising children is a good thing, with Millennials leading the way at 45%.
Social conservatives point out that the number of young people opposed to abortion used to be equally bleak among the young but is now trending their way.

The gays have won.

At least for now, until the next deadly disease starts sweeping through the community.

Because the millenials are pro and they are the least religious group in generations.

And it will happen.  God will not be mocked.

Don't forget this is the Megan McCain crowd and Ron Paul followers.

They are no more Republicans than the rest of the RINOs who back everything from the homosexual agenda to abortion to amnesty.
