Can yeast leaven cornmeal? If not, why? The lack of gluten?

Most bread recipes that have cornmeal usually use a combination of cornmeal and wheat flour. I have made pizza crusts with cornmeal leavened with yeast, but they are about 1/3 to 1/2 cornmeal. Any more than that and they have a texture more like polenta or grits than bread. Short answer, yes, if you mix the cornmeal with wheat flour.
