Grindr For Equality Poll: Gay Social App Users Favor Obama, Stress Economy In 2012

Democratic and Republican Grindr users are focused on the economy this election season, but their stance on equality differs vastly along party lines, a new poll conducted by the popular gay dating app has found.

"Grindr for Equality," a social effort which strives to "unite gay men across the country, make that voice grow louder and have a nationwide impact," conducted the survey. The biggest issue named by users of both parties was, by far, the economy, with a whopping 46 percent.

In a press release, officials pointed to the 65 percent disparity between Republican users' concern for the economy and job creation (73 percent) and equality (a mere 8 percent). On the flip side, Democrats were similarly concerned with the economy (38 percent), a larger segment (35 percent) said equality was a major issue.

Perhaps less surprising: 60 percent of Grindr users surveyed identified as Democrats, and 76 percent of users planned to vote for President Barack Obama, according to the press release.

Take a look at the rest of the survey's results below:
