Well, the guy knows from when he speaks…
Asked whether he would be at a disadvantage politically if gays galvanize behind Obama’s reelection campaign, Romney said, "Hopefully, people are focusing on the major issues of the day, which relate to our economy, getting people back to work, dealing with Syria… But I know for many people, the issue of marriage is going to be a defining issue, and they will make their decision on that basis. That is their right. But you don't change your position to try to win states or certain subgroups of Americans. You have the positions you have, and you know, for a long time, I think since the beginning of my career, I have made it very clear that I thought that marriage should be a relationship between a man and a women."
Exactly this! You don't change your position to try to win "certain subgroups of Americans."
You change your position to win very specific subgroups of Americans: religious conservative octogenarian misogynistic homophobes. Because those are the people who come out to vote. All the young hippy liberal do-gooders will be too busy making Smash fan art and taking pictures of their cats to show up to the polls.
