Rove: I Could See GOP’s 2016 Candidate Supporting Same-Sex Marriage

With the Supreme Court set to hear two cases on the issue of same-sex marriage this week, Republican strategist Karl Rove told This Week’s George Stephanopoulos that “I could” see the Republican party’s next presidential candidate supporting same-sex marriage. This comes on the heels of Ohio’s Republican senator Rob Portman’s recent support of the issue.

Rove also said that he could easily see the justices opting to give the power to decide to the states, citing Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s criticism of Roe v. Wade that the Court should not have imposed one national view. He saw the potential for a 6-3 decision from the justices on granting it to the states, and even projected as high as 8-1.
