A supporter holds up a sign as singer Lady Gaga speaks at a rally, urging members of the Senate to repeal the military rule banning openly gay people from serving in the armed forces, in Portland, Maine in this September 20, 2010 file photo. Gay voters, disappointed with U.S. President Barack Obama's failure to do away with a ban on gays in the military, have pared back funding for Democrats in the midterm elections but are unlikely to abandon them at the polls on November 2, 2010.
