"70 percent of respondents to a confidential military survey said they expected positive, mixed or non-existent effects from lifting the ban..." "But 40 percent of Marines expressed concern over repeal"

So, was some of the 40% also included as part of the "mixed" effects? And was the survey ALL just Marines, or did they break it down to determine that Marines are more concerned than other branches of the military?

This is why I can't read the news :)

My understanding is that they broke it down by branch of service.

Interesting, I wonder what the gender breakdown is between the branches. I picture the Marines as being very heavily male, but that might be uninformed on my part...
