Redefining Marriage Could Cost Tories Up to 30 Seats in UK Parliament; Over 1.1 Million Votes

 

Gay marriage is a "conservative" position? Conservative voters in the UK evidently don't think so:

The Conservative Party could lose up to 30 Parliamentary seats and over 1.1 million votes if it bulldozes ahead with plans to redefine marriage, a new poll shows.

The poll, conducted by ComRes, shows that the party’s support for gay marriage is alienating former Tory voters.

For every disaffected Tory supporter attracted back to the party, it loses almost three because of its stance on the issue.

An analysis of the polling figures shows that the Tories stand to lose anywhere between eight and 30 Parliamentary seats, and could lose more than 1.1 million votes in a general election. -- UK Christian Institute
