Gay and lesbian issues have mushroomed in the national psyche because Americans have become much more comfortable talking about them, according to Kelly Ann Conway, a Republican strategist and pollster.

“If I can pick one thing that’s really changed in public opinion over time, it’s the number of Americans that say that they know someone close to them . . . who is gay or lesbian,’’ Conway told John Fund, guest host of Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show.’’

“It’s not that the number of people who are gay or lesbian has necessarily increased. It’s that people are more open about it and they discuss it more with their friends and relatives.’’

Conway said while some believe the Republican Party took big hits in last year’s elections because of its stands on gay marriage and abortion, that notion is not necessarily accurate.

“The House of Representatives, the Republican-led Congress, which is always being denounced as the most intractable, most conservative, right-wing, beholden to the Christians and the baby lovers . . . and the gun-toters, they’re the ones that got re-elected,’’ she said.

“That’s the only branch of government in Washington to continue to get controlled by Republicans.’’
