How the Democratic nominee will net over 600,000 new votes this fall
In 2000 george w. bush won 25% of the gay vote (scroll down about 1/4 the way, see http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2000/epolls/US/P000.html ).

If gay marriages are going to be a salient issue in 2004 we can expect the Republicans to run a stringently anti-gay homophobic campaign, much more so than in 2000. It may get so bad that somewhere out there some gay-basher may be pushed over the edge, resulting in another Matthew Shepard incident. I predict that gays will vote 90% or more for the Democratic nominee, resulting in about 600,000 more votes. In a closely divided electorate, that could matter a whole lot.

1. Bush will be largely quiet on the issue.
Having said that, large numbers of those around his campaign and those running for other seats will be quite vocal. It will be "A Campaign Issue, Once Removed" for The Chimpenator. The GLBT Community would be quite wise to pay close attention to this fact and vote accordingly.

If he gets back into office, their pets will have as many civil rights as they do, once he and his cohorts are done.
