A new poll of Republicans reveals data that will surprise even the most liberal of lesbians.

The new Daily Kos/Research 2000poll delivers some answers on how self-identified Republicans feel about gay rights and President Obama.

The majority of Republicans feel that gays and lesbians should not be allowed to serve their country, marry their loved one, receive federal or state benefits, or be allowed to teach our children in public schools.

The poll was conducted by calling 2,003 self-identified Republicans nationwide between January 20 and 31 and it's not surprising why the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" has taken nearly two decades. Here are some of the results:

Should openly gay men and women be allowed to serve in the military?

Yes 26

No 55

Not Sure 19

Should same sex couples be allowed to marry?

Yes 7

No 77

Not Sure 16

Should gay couples receive any state or federal benefits?

Yes 11

No 68

Not Sure 21

Should openly gay men and women be allowed to teach in public schools?

Yes 8

No 73

Not Sure 19

The poll also reveals that two-thirds of Republicans assume anyone that is not a Christian is going to hell and one-third actually believe Obama is a racist who hates white people.
