National Briefs

A Washington Post-ABC News poll released July 21 found that 75 percent of Americans oppose the military’s ban on openly gay service members, the so-called “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy signed into law by President Bill Clinton 15 years ago.
Even Republicans – 64 percent – and white evangelical Christians – 57 percent – support scrapping the ban.
Pollsters questioned 1,119 people in a random national sampling and reported an error margin of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
