George Osborne: Marriage Must Happen In UK, Look What Happened To GOP

Citing the recent sweep of marriage victories in America, high ranking Tory member George Osborne says his party must "get in step with the people" if they want to stay in power.
His call came in an analysis of why Barack Obama defeated Mitt Romney in the US election despite rising unemployment and even polls suggesting that the Republican candidate was trusted more to turn the economy around. Mr Osborne said that the Republicans had lost “swathes of voters” because of their traditionalist positions on social issues. His comments represent a break from conventional political wisdom about what wins elections summed up by the strategists behind Bill Clinton’s successful 1992 campaign: “It’s the economy, stupid”.
