Stumble by Rubio: Marco Rubio: Being Gay Is Not a Choice

You had to do it huh, Marco?

This is a misstep by Rubio that will hurt him with Conservatives. How much it hurts him I don’t know. He would’ve been much better off answering, “It’s a choice or I don’t know.”

 

NewsMax reports Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio says he does not believe sexual orientation is a choice for the “enormous majority of people.”

The Florida senator’s comments came Sunday on CBS’s Face the Nation, where he said that it should be up to states rather than the Supreme Court to define marriage and that he considers marriage to be between a man and a woman.

“I also don’t believe that your sexual preferences are a choice for the vast and enormous majority of people. In fact, the bottom line is, I believe that sexual preference is something people are born with,” Rubio said.

He and other Republican presidential hopefuls have faced questions in recent days about their positions on same-sex marriage as the nation’s top court prepares for what is expected to be a broad ruling on the constitutionality of the issue in June.

Americans support the right of same-sex couples to wed, 55 percent to 42 percent, according to a Gallup poll in May 2014, reflecting sweeping movement in public opinion over nearly two decades. Republican support has also grown, but stands at just 30 percent, according to the poll.

Answering these types of questions is a trap used by Liberal media to disqualify Republicans. Rubio should have been smarter.
