A New York Times/CBS News poll did an experiment that had strange results. It asked half of the people it surveyed whether they approved allowing “gay men and lesbians” to serve in the military, and the other half were asked about permitting “homosexuals” to serve. Seven in 10 respondents said they favor allowing “gay men and lesbians” to serve in the military, including nearly 6 in 10 who said they should be allowed to serve openly, the Times reported. But 59 percent favored allowing “homosexuals’ to serve, and only 44 percent supported allowing them to serve openly. The views differed most among Democrats polled: 79 percent supported permitting gay men and lesbians to serve openly, but only 43 percent favored allowing homosexuals to serve openly.
