In 2006, 24 percent of gay voters chose the GOP; and in 2004, 23 percent did so.
The percentage of gay voters polled, though, represents just a small sample of larger, national surveys.
Only 3 percent of the 17,504 voters surveyed by CNN on Tuesday identified themselves as gay.
Still, gay Republicans see the numbers as a reason to celebrate.
“The gay left would have you believe that gay conservatives don’t exist,” said GOProud Executive Director Jimmy LaSalvia. “Now we see that almost a third of self-identified gay voters cast ballots for Republican candidates for Congress in this year’s midterm.”
“This should be a wake-up call for the out-of-touch so-called leadership of Gay Inc. in Washington, D.C., which has become little more than a subsidiary of the Democrat Party,” he said in a statement.
