No, I don’t think it really will affect our votes. He did a lot for us. He’s changed a lot – brought home the troops from Iraq, kept the taxes on the rich and put people back to work.
Vera Rosado, 80
Miami, retired nurse’s aid
No, I don’t think so. He doesn’t have any business getting in anybody’s bedroom anyway. That’s not his job.
Ronald Williams, 51
I think he made a bold statement about same-sex marriage, but I don’t think it will affect Black voters too much. I think that old voters will be kind of concerned, but the young voters are kind of for same sex marriage.
James Reco Smith, 64
He’ll still get my vote. Besides, who am I to judge any individual as long as they don’t impose on me and rights?
Cuthbert Haywood, 49
No, I don’t think so because it was all a political move. Everybody has to pay attention to how Obama uses his words. All he said was that he is not God and he doesn’t have the right to judge anyone. In a nutshell, he’s still leaving it up to states to decide if they’ll recognize [same sex marriages]. Whose going to be mad at the person who gave them more power? I’d still vote for him.
Anthony Frederick, Sr., 32
Miami, tire technician
Yes, because people believe that God didn’t create Adam for Steve, he created Adam for Eve. Many Christians aren’t going to overlook that fact to vote for Obama. But I’m going to vote for him.
