Marriage Equality USA released this awesome graph today that showcases the LGBT stances of all of the 2012 presidential candidates, including a few Republican names you've probably never heard of, the GOP players who have gotten all the press, and President Obama himself.
Ned Flaherty worked on compiling the graph for Marriage Equality USA. Check out his methodology on their website. Flaherty plans to update the candidates' stances on the issues if or when they change, through the time of the election.
Fred Karger, the openly gay Republican nominee who's been struggling to make an impact, leads the pack in terms of a plan for LGBT equality, followed by the Obama administration. Many of the front-running Republican candidates, including Michele Bachmann and Mitt Romney, have almost no eye toward LGBT equality, whereas Ron Paul, who ranked second in the Ames poll this weekend (after Bachmann), believes in some pro-LGBT stances.
