Seventy-eight percent support letting military Gays come out
Seventy-eight percent of Americans support letting Gays serve in the military openly, as opposed to their staying closeted as required by the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy.
CNN and Opinion Research Corporation polled 1,023 Americans by telephone May 21-23 and released the results May 25.
"Support is widespread, even among Republicans," said CNN polling director Keating Holland. "Nearly six in 10 Republicans favor allowing openly Gay individuals to serve in the military."
The poll found that women support letting military Gays come out at a higher level, 85 percent, than men do, 71 percent. The margin of error was 3 percent.
