His stance on gay marriage has no effect on me. There is no way I would vote for him or any other Big Gov't candidate.

I think it's bullshit, it's a campaign strategy, as someone bisexual I'm not any more or less likely to vote for him

I've always been a supporter of President Obama so I liked his move but it didn't sway me either way

Obama is a lot more conservative than people realize, but I'll probably still vote for him

I've never supported him, and even though I've always hoped for a president to say such things, if he meant it I think he should've said it sooner, or waited until after the election. The timing makes it look like a ploy, and I can't tell if he is honest and sincere about it or not.

It will not sway my thoughts about him, until much later on down the road, seeing if he sticks to his guns and if he really seems to have meant it. I personally feel it could've been a way to make the other side have to step up to get the votes.

No. My decision on Obama being president is a very strong one and his decision to support any cause I believe in will not alter that. I have to wonder why he didn't decide to support them earlier? For extra votes. He knows it's one of the biggest "issues" in the world today so it makes sense that he'd choose to support it for extra votes.

I don't think I will ever change my view.

No change for me. I haven't decided who I will vote for. I have plenty of time to think about it. I will vote for the lesser of the two evils. I'm not a Obama fan, but that doesn't mean the person who is running against him is any better. I fully support the decision for gay marriage, but just because he thinks we should have it doesn't mean anything is going to change. We the voters have to change that. Not him.

Personally, if I have to choose between him and Romney, I'm choosing Obama. Not because of his support of gay marriage, but because I want separation of church and state in my elected officials and the GOP candidates are not the choice for that desire. No matter what a candidate's religion is, their book of doctrine is NOT a legally binding document for our nation that was founded on a separation of church and state.

Is Obama an ideal candidate? No. Is ANYONE? I mean, really, politicians are all the same, are they not? He's made mistakes, as have all elected officials. I think people are unfair to him (and all presidents, really) in that they expect a turn-around to happen instantaneously. That's an unrealistic expectation. You can't fix 8 years of outrageous spending on a war in 4 years. It's like weight loss. It didn't take you a month to gain it all, and you won't lose it in a month.

He may be honest about his change of heart, or it could be a ploy. Only he knows. Either way, a president coming out in support of a civil rights issue is an important step in seeing laws changed, and that is something I do support. Everyone deserves the same rights. Sexual orientation, gender, race, and religion aside... everyone deserves to have the same rights.

I don't support any big government candidates, but if I did support him at all, this would make me less likely. Not because I have an issue with gay marriage, but because it's such obvious pandering. He was for gay marriage while he was trying to get the nomination, against it when he was trying to get votes for president, and now he's for it again when he knows he's lost any chance with religious-issues voters.

Kudos for him but I was already supporting him

Definitely glad that we've gotten to the point where a president could openly support gay marriage, and I'd more likely to vote for him than the other candidates

I was already supporting him so no change, but it did increase my faith a little that he'll do the right thing. The fact that he has been the first president in history to openly admit he supports gay marriage is enough of a milestone itself.

I think he is just trying to get more votes..... I don't like him, didn't vote for anyone last election because they all SUCKED.... I'm looking into this Ron Paul character... he seems legit

Except that he's out of the race. He's suspended his campaign.

He's also not as legit as he seems. He's a non-interventionist, which would be fine, except that he thinks that state governments should have more control... and after North Carolina's vote, I, personally, think our country could really suffer that way.

I don't care if he says his feelings have changed in order to get millions in aid from gay supporters. I only care about him taking action to pass legislation to give equal rights on a national scale to gay couples. He never puts his money where his mouth is. Obama talks big and people coo over him and then he does nothing and calls it a day.

No one will be losing their rights and if rights were taken away the people who fight hard for rights would take measures into their own hands and over turn any overly powerful official. The United States has lived far too long with freedoms. No one is going to bend over and take it if they keep taking things from us. There are far more of us the people than them the GOP. We will over run them if that is necessary.

No Change, I liked him before, and I still like him now. Besides, simply expressing his opinion doesnt mean he's actually going to do anything about it. If he goes and makes gay marriage legal throughout the entire US like it should be, then I'll go out in the streets cheering him on, otherwise, hes the same old fairly-decent president he was before.
