Singer is a supporter of gay marriage. 'I believe a generation from now, gay marriage will be seen as a profoundly traditionalizing act. It will have channeled love into the most powerful social institution on earth: marriage itself.' Singer raised more than $1 million for the reelection campaigns of New York Republicans who support gay marriage.
Singer started American Unity PAC in 2012, infusing the operation with a big early donation. The super PAC spent over $2 million on congressional races last cycle, according to data compiled by the Center For Responsive Politics. The group had limited success, backing more losing candidates that winning ones. Even so, the creation of the PAC offered a new financial vessel for donors looking to protect Republicans friendly to gay rights, serving as a countermeasure to anti-gay marriage groups like the National Organization For Marriage.
Singer is regarded as supporter of right-wing politics in Israel and and as proponent of pro-war policies against Iran.
