Poll: Growing majority backs our California dream

by Jeremy Hooper

200809181247A newly released Field Poll suggests that only 38% of likely voters support Proposition 8, with a promising 55% of respondents vowing to vote NO on the discriminatory ban:

Of course like all polls, this one has a margin of error. But unlike other polls, this one's caveat actually indicates that anyone who votes to confine gay couples to the margins is acting in error.

At least that's how we interpret it.

Your thoughts

OOH! Yeah! It'll be interesting to see what the final vote really is. Especially if some of the celebs will come out and start promoting in October.

I really want to be excited about this. And about the fact that Obama again has the lead in nationwide polls over Palin. But, it's not over, and if the last few weeks are any indication, then over the next 46 days it is going to get much uglier and the Karl Rove brand of campaigning is going to get more deceptive and more prevalent. But, at least for today, the future is looking bright!
