GOP Struggles With Gay Marriage

Wall Street Journal: "Polls show that social conservatives, who make up a large share of the party's core supporters, remain firmly opposed to gay marriage. But in a half-dozen state legislatures controlled by the GOP, bills allowing businesses to refuse services for gay weddings are dead or on hold. In Illinois, three Republicans who voted to allow gay marriage in their state won primaries this month, despite opposition from social conservatives, preliminary results showed."

"The developments worry some opponents of gay marriage... They also come as the GOP is debating whether its best course for building a national majority, which has eluded it in five of the past six presidential elections, is to recommit to conservative principles or to adjust its tone and stances to reach new voters."
