One out of every 10 gay voters supported Barack Obama in the 2012 election, according to pre-election polling by Community Marketing Inc.

In a national survey taken a few days before the November 6 election, six percent of the gay voters said they were casting votes for Mitt Romney and four percent declared for other candidates.

The poll also found:

- 95 percent of gays and lesbians said they intended to vote;
- 41 percent of gay and lesbian indicated they participated in early voting; and
- 41 percent said they had donated money to the Obama campaign.

Here’s additional information from the press release:

The election poll of 6,625 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) United States citizens was administered November 2-4, 2012 and responses were received from all 50 states. LGBTs represent an estimated 5% of United States voters and an overwhelming majority supported the coalition that produced Barack Obama’s victory. 90% support for Obama was seen in all Battleground States and the percentage was similar to the level that Obama received from the African American community.
