Majority of Republicans would attend a loved one's gay wedding: Reuters/Ipsos poll

A box of cupcakes are seen topped with icons of same-sex couples at City Hall in San FranciscoBy Jeff Mason WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A majority of U.S. Republicans would attend the same-sex wedding of a loved one, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed on Wednesday, highlighting the political risks for Republican presidential candidates who stake out positions against gay marriage. Though some Republican White House hopefuls have tried to insert nuance into their positions on gay marriage – something that polling shows most Americans back – their opposition is clear. The question of whether or not a candidate would attend the gay wedding of a loved one has become an increasingly common litmus test for candidates on the issue. Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush said on Tuesday he would attend the same-sex wedding of someone he cared about.
