Ken Mehlman has a featured piece in the Wall Street Journal about demography, American politics, and marriage equality.

Ken Mehlman brings up the interesting idea that marriage equality is not solely a progressive issue.  Indeed, it is one that is closely tied in with conservative values.

“Some misperceive the issue of marriage equality as exclusively progressive. Yet what could be more conservative than support for more freedom and less government?” Mehlman wrote. “And what freedom is more basic than the right to marry the person you love?”

He also explains Project Right Side, which commissioned leading GOP polling firm Target Point to survey voters and help Republicans appreciate this changing environment.
