“No. It was a smart move on Obama’s part to avoid bringing that up. Unfor-tunately, it’s still a divisive issue. I really think it would have cost Obama some support if he brought it up. I give Romney credit for not trying to use it as a wedge against Obama.”

“Yes. I would have liked it touched upon, even briefly. It shouldn’t have been ignored completely.  There was no acknowledge-ment what-soever. That didn’t sit well with me. I would have appreciated some clarity about their positions on LGBT issues.”

“Yes. We’re a significant part of the population.  There’s an ongoing national discussion about our rights. The debates should have reflected that. Instead, it was like we didn’t exist. Or that nobody’s been listening to us for all these years.”

“Yes. I think it would have helped Obama if Romney was asked about his position on LGBT rights.  Romney’s true colors would have been exposed. He’s opposite of where a lot of people stand on the issue. I’m for Obama.”
