For Democratic Voters, Age Matters More Than Sexual Orientation

According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll, Americans are more likely to say they would reject a candidate older than 70 than a candidate who is gay.

The national opinion poll was conducted with the Williams Institute at UCLA.

The poll showed a steady increase in acceptance of gay politicians.

48% said they were β€œmuch” or β€œsomewhat” less likely to support someone for the White House if the person was older than 70, while 34% were less likely to vote for someone who is gay.
