  • Among 78 who plan to vote in a Republican primary for president, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani leads Sen. John McCain (50% to 23%) in a national primary; former Gov. Mitt Romney trails at 11%, former Sen. Fred Thompson at 10%. All other candidates receive less than five percent each.

John:

Andrew Sullivan has already done a nice critique of the dubious sampling in this poll here and here.

That's good, We as bisexual also have the same right to do everything. Don't try us as special ones. If you do get to know some bisexual no matter in your daily life or on the internet of some site as http://www.bimingle.com, you will know what kind of people we are. We can still behavior in a very good way as you straight guys do. We as bisexual should struggle for more this kind of right.

Interesting poll. I'd very much be interested to see how these numbers have changed. Has the LGBT community embraced Obama? More or less so than other groups?

Anyone have any new data on this?
