Obama: Economy, Not Gay Marriage, Will Decide Vote [VIDEO]

President Barack Obama says it is “hard to say” whether his new stance supporting same sex marriage will hurt his re-election.

He says there’s a major difference between himself and Republican challenger Mitt Romney on the issue, but says the economy will ultimately determine the outcome of the election.

PREVIOUS: Obama Voices Support For Gay Marriage

Obama made his remarks during a discussion on ABC’s “The View,” a daytime talk show. That interview will air later today, but ABC broadcast an excerpt on “Good Morning America.”

He said churches should have the right to make their own determinations about marriage. But he said that as a matter of civil law, all Americans should be treated equally.

Obama became the first sitting president to support same-sex marriage last week. Before, he had said his views had been evolving.
