Here are the results of our ENDA or Not? Poll. Politics Plus Polls are not scientific, because those who respond are not balanced according to demographic categories. Therefore, we do not accurately reflect the makeup of the US population. Nevertheless, our polls are often accurate.

ENDA will not get through the House with the likes of Boehner and the other House of fools bonzos still there.

So, so sad but probably true.

In 2005, only two states had marriage equality, now 16 states have legal marriage equality. We are marching on, the vast majority of the American people, that includes those who identify as democrat, independent and republican are strongly supportive of ENDA, with lowest number in the 70+ percentile. People may not wish to openly admit this, but we all know this could affect our children, grandchildren or any part of our extended family. Just as the vast majority want a fair and reasonable immigration policy that includes a path to citizenship.

The House is out of touch and not in sync (not to be confused with 'N Sync) with the American people. Americans tend to have a strong feelings for their neighbors and community. The extremely harsh attitude in the House does not represent the desires of good hearted Americans. We want our Congress to function, to make deals, to compromise and do the job they hired for, representing the people, not their own gamesmanship.

I'm versed enough in American, or rather Republican, politics to vote along with the majority. After the shutdown, there seemed to be only one way this could play out: Republicans saving face in the Senate and relying on Boehner, with his hatred and thirst for power, to prevent it from coming to a vote.

We definitely need to change the Congressional and several Senators attitude by voting against these fools in 2014. Can the Repugs honestly not see this ?

We NEED to FOCUS on the 2014 election. This is IMPORTANT! We HAVE TO VOTE! These hateful, self-serving fools have GOT TO GO! I intend to volunteer to do whatever I can to make sure the Brown-shirted Teabagging terrorist bullies get shown the door out! We need intelligent representatives in both parties for this Democracy to work.

I even wonder if ENDA will get a vote in the house...if immigration reform won't that would be 2 more ways GOP leadership can be prejudicial and deny it...."we didn't vote against you"

Totally meaningless. Boner said he will not allow a vote.

Noted. Earlier, I read that there was an amendment to ENDA to eliminate religious facilities from the bill....meaning, it seems, that you're employed by a religious organization, they can still fire you for being gay. This was included to get more GOP support for the bill. When I read that, I nearly fell out of my chair. Talk about un-Xtian! As I read this to my husband, we just looked at each other in amazement. How do these religious folk get away with these un-Xtian attitudes?!
So, now, when we ask our Congressmembers to please vote in favor of ENDA, it will be with this amendment. Just sickens me!

Whether John Boehner allows a vote on ENDA (or any other legislating) may be irrelevant soon, he seems to be in a bit of a pickle. Daily Kos has posted an article about how the Tea Party is planning to primary a bunch of GOP 'traitors' including Speaker John Boehner.

Well, that's what you get for Partying with selfish, unyielding people who think they deserve everything. They turn on you at a moment's notice. If he had a backbone (or whatever body part you choose to invoke here) he'd just say "Hell with it!" and bring ALL the legislation he's been blocking up for a vote. But, alas . . . !

Can't imagine the House voting for anyone or anything they fear; LGBT rights, women's rights, Black rights, Hispanic rights, etc, etc. Seems they have no common sense and they're afraid of just about everything. Thanks for the poll results, TomCat.

Actually your poll is actually right on the mark. ENDA, Immigration,... all poll high with the majority of the American People and do well in the Senate where the races are State wide and not like far too much of the House where the Repugs are from gerrymandered Repug safe zones. And even then it is also true that ENDA et alia would pass the House if Boner and Cancer et alia in the House Leadership would allow them on the House floor for a vote.

Thanks everyone,

Lois, correct me if I'm wrong, but if I remember correctly, that that Amendment covers only religious jobs within religious institutions. For instance, a Catholic hospital could not discriminate against LGBT nurses.

Lloyd, you have anticipated tomorrow's lead article, which will be up in a bit.

Oh there will still be plenty of lies, but the program itself will survive and thrive, because that republican majority will all but, and maybe completely, be gone after the 2014 elections. The people want this program, polls prove that, and as long as the republican tea party wing keeps talking insanitea, they are going down and taking the rest of the party with them. Governors elected in 2010 are running next fall, Senators in 2016 and most of them are not going to survive what they have done since 2010. The people may be discontent but they are not stupid.
