Two-Thirds of America Thinks DADT Is Discriminatory. That Doesn’t Mean Two-Thirds Want It Repealed

America once again declares: Gays should be able to serve openly in the military. In a poll of Some 2,617 registered voters, polled during the past week by Quinnipiac University, 57 percent of respondents said they supported open service and repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, with 36 percent opposed. (Support is up just 1 percent, from April 2009’s 56 percent.) More interesting, however, is that 66 percent say DADT qualifies as discrimination; 31 percent did not. Which means more Americans can identify discrimination than want to do something about it.
