If he was still alive, would Ronald Reagan have supported same-sex marriage? According to his daughter Patti Davis, he would, even though he himself did not have a gay or lesbian child. As a model of conservatism, his support for same-sex marriage would be like an earthquake. Can his daughter’s  opinion influence the party?

The 40th President might not have supported gay marriage because of a generational issue. The older Republican majority is against gay marriage. We will never know what Ronald Reagan would do because dead people do not speak. Only his record can speak on his behalf. So what is the point of knowing his opinion about same sex-marriage? As the Serere of Senegal say, “What is the use of consulting a dead man’s horoscope?”
