When President Barack Obama made his historic announcement in support of gay marriage, political pundits went into overdrive trying to determine whether it would help or hurt him come November. A new Reuters/Ipsos poll released Tuesday revealed that, so far, the move hasn’t swayed voters much one way or the other. Roughly 31 percent of those polled now have a more favorable view of Obama, and 30 percent say they have a less favorable view. Forty percent say the announcement had no impact on how they’ll vote whatsoever. In the most important category—independent voters—tended to side against the president by just a hair, 26 percent of them viewing Obama less favorably while 19 percent now view him more favorably. Fifty-four percent said the announcement had no impact on their opinion.
