Weak Support

A politician will typically support only 10% of what his gay constituency would like him too. Why? That is enough to differentiate him from the competition. If he went for 20% he would lose some anti-gay voters, but would gain no extra gay ones. This applies to all kinds of issues from global warming to foreign wars. All you can do is get your representative elected, push him to handle the current hot issue and start pushing for the next 10% of your agenda.
