Poll: We're still losing/possibly winning in FL

by Jeremy Hooper

200809081448The bad news: A new Quinnipiac University poll shows that a majority of Florida voters, 55%, support the state's proposed marriage ban.

The good news: 55% is not enough to enact the historical pockmark, since the marriage amendment would need a 60% supermajority to gain passage on election day.

The findings:

Quinnipiac University Poll Finds; Voters Back Ban On Gay Marriage, But Short Of 60% [Quinnipiac]

Oh the never-ending joys of being a gay human in the U.S of A, where a majority of your fellow citizen can choose to view your love as less-than-equal and it still be considered a positive development. Jealous, heteros?

Your thoughts

The important question is, of course, what is the orange stuff in the bowl? Is Florida eating Cheetos?

:-) Oranges.

But now that you mention it, they doe look more like Cheetos.

Well if amendments are going to be passed by referendum it certainly is better that the threshold is higher like in Florida than the simple 50.1% in California. The latter strikes me as being quite an insane way of doing business and a threat to civil rights.

The one sort of positive news out of this is you read all the way down to the bottom where it asks about civil unions, every demographic except evangelicals are in support of at least allowing civil unions as opposed to having no recognition at all (even Repubs 53-43). I realize its not on the ballot but evangelicals opposing civil unions only 50-46 at least to me means we are making some progress.
