GOP poised to make crucial change to position on gay marriage: reports
The GOP is reportedly poised to end its push for an amendment to ban same sex marriage across the country.
CNN reports the party would leave it up to the states, citing a draft of the party platform the news outlet claims to have received ahead of the Republican National Convention.
The platform would still say the government should recognize marriage as between a man and woman and "actively promote married family life as the basis of a stable and prosperous society," and would still call for a reversal of the Supreme Court's decision last year that legalized same-sex marriage.

An unnamed delegate told the network, "There are ways to say things that show we are a party that believes in fairness for all Americans."
Other changes to the platform include emphasis on "trade agreements that put America first," which seems familiar.
While the party appears ready to make a big shift on one social issue, the draft platform doesn't appear to change on abortion. Donald Trump said in April he would want the Republican platform to include exceptions for rape, incest and life of the mother. However, the draft platform reportedly doesn't include exceptions.
