      There has recently been some controversy since Barack Obama announced that he now supported same sex marriage.

      What are your thoughts about Barack Obama supporting same sex marriage? Do you feel that this may affect him being elected again?

      Don't see why there should be controversy,people need to get themselves into the 21st century.

      I think its good for his image... and should boost his self-confidence and people would be more in his favor and etc.

      I'm glad he's behind it. He just needs to state in his next term he will make gay marriage legal everywhere. That will get him every last gay person's vote.

      I think it's good. Anyone should have the right to be married. I'm not gay, but the people who are shouldn't be not allowed to get married.

      I think it's great! But I can't help but feel it was more or so a publicity stunt to get more people to vote for him. :C

      You do have a point, with him outing it so close to him starting to campaign to be elected again it is going to be something that will run through many people's heads.

      I agree with the others, it does kind of seem more like a publicity stunt, though it's nice seeing a president actually supporting it.
