SDGLN Poll: Readers largely split over whether HRC was right to endorse Obama so soon

Readers of San Diego Gay & Lesbian News who took our poll are clearly divided on whether the Human Rights Campaign was right to endorse a presidential candidate so far in advance of the 2012 election.

Our poll question was: Do you think HRC was correct to endorse the re-election of Obama before any major political party had nominated a candidate?

The results, which are not scientific, reveal that 52% of readers say that they believe that the HRC was wrong to endorse a candidate so soon. However, 48% say the HRC was correct to endorse Obama.

The SDGLN Reader Poll is open for voting for seven consecutive days. A new poll question will debut each Monday.

This week’s poll question asks readers: Thirty years after AIDS was first defined, do you think we are any closer to finding a cure?
