|There are not enough voters in the blue states to win a General Election|
Do you really think the GOP wants that to happen? A long time ago I'd written that in order for the GOP to win, they would most likely throw the Social Conservatives under the bus. If the Supreme Court rules in favor of Marriage Equality and if they know how to handle such a decision, that action is no longer necessary. Oh, and it is a conservative backed Supreme Court. While it wouldn't give the Republicans a 'get out of jail free' card, it would unlock the door.
