Is there actually any good evidence that gay marriage was a deciding factor in Bush's re-election? People keep asserting it, but I can't find anything that shows it.

There's no doubt that morality was involved, but why say gay marriage was the big issue? To most people, abortion, what John Kerry did when he came home from Vietnam, the war in Iraq, etc. are all moral issues too.

And yes, evangelical Christians came out more to vote this time, but so did every other group of people, including 18-29s. Everyone voted more this time.

I am not saying it was not a part of the picture, but *the* deciding factor? What am I missing?
