Poll: Would Prop Recre8 be better?

by Jeremy Hooper

Gays are itching to correct the soul-crushing, dehumanizing, discriminatory social affront that was/is Prop 8. But would it be in our best interest to go back to the CA polls for another marriage equality ballot initiative? Well....maybe.

A newly released Field Poll shows that if a new vote were held, 47% of registered CA voters would still vote yes to inequality, 48% would this time do the right thing, and 5% have yet to form an opinion. So while we're slightly up, a win would really be all about those crucial undecideds -- and who the hell knows if they'd even decide to show up and vote?!

Here, if you like your data raw, you can check out/download the complete mixed-bag poll results below:

Download: Voters very sharply divided if asked to decide on a new constitutional amendment to allow same-sex marriages. Big differences by party, ideology, age, marital status, gender, region and religious preference. [Field]

Oh, and to that 5%: Can you PLEASE get off that fence? You're ruining our wedding photos.

**Note: This is registered voters as opposed to likely voters. That could change things slightly.

Your thoughts

How about Prop Pro-Crea8. If the supreme court doesn't overturn prop 8 it's a free-for all on ballot initiatives. I say we take the proposition nonsense even further and ban all non procreative couples from wedded bliss.
