Backlash growing against the "traditional values" crowd

Andrew Sullivan posts the results of a Gallup poll that indicates support is dropping for having the government promote moral values. Issues like gay marriage have become a low priority for Americans.

"The public is divided ... on whether the federal government should be involved in promoting moral values, with 48% saying it should and 48% saying it should not. In 1996, Americans took a very different view on this matter, with 60% saying the government should be involved and 38% saying it should not... That change appears to be a fairly recent phenomenon." From 1993 until recently, majorities of at least 10 percentage points chose "Government should promote traditional values" over "should not favor any values."
