Despite the unwillingness of Senate Republicans to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"--and the President's longstanding reluctance to end the policy outright--A new Washington Post-ABC News poll reports that 77% of Americans favor allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military. The poll observes: "The support also cuts across partisan and ideological lines, with majorities of Democrats, Republicans, independents, liberals, conservatives and white evangelical Protestants in favor of homosexuals' serving openly."
