Quinnipiac Poll: 58% Of Americans Support Repealing Don't Ask, Don't Tell


The latest survey shows 34% of respondents opposed to repealing the law that prohibits gay men and women from serving openly in the military. And for the first time, the survey finds military families supporting a repeal: 55% of respondents with a member of their family in the military favor a repeal, while only 38% are in opposition.

According to the findings, 53% of Republicans indicated support for keeping the current policy, while only 29% of self-identified independents and 22% of Democrats expressed the same sentiment.

For the first time, the national survey also found more Americans opposed to the war in Afghanistan than in support of it. The survey's margin of error is ±2.0 percentage points.
