NOM to readers: Go read report where 95% of respondents stand against our agenda

by Jeremy Hooper

The National Organization For Marriage is pushing a US News & World Report piece which touts marriage (in)equality as a major factor in the 2012 races:

USNews & World Report: "Gay Marriage Could be a Difference Maker Issue in 2012" [NOM Blog]

Although NOM might want to be careful. Because look at the poll results on that very same USN&WR story that they're pushing:

Now, I don't know how many respondents gave us this percentage breakdown. But 94.46%?! That's crazy! Heck, I'd expect even an "Is grass green?" question to find at least 8% in the "not for the color blind" crowd (no matter how small the sample size)!

So will marriage and, particularly, DOMA get some play in '12? Maybe. Though judging by the rapidly changing metrics of this debate, perhaps we should instead say "hopefully."
