Despite all credible polling, NOM decides discrimination is a New Jersey value

by Jeremy Hooper

According to Quinnipiac's latest poll, a bipartisan majority of New Jersey voters favor marriage equality by a nearly 2-1 margin. But check out what the National Organization For Marriage, which was founded in the Garden State, has to say about tomorrow's special US Senate election between pro-equality superstar Cory Booker and their endorsed candidate, anti-equality Republican Steve Lonegan:

It's vital that we carry Steve Lonegan over the top by voting tomorrow, Wednesday the 16th, for the only candidate who shares New Jersey's values and will fight for them in the U.S. Senate — Steve Lonegan. [NOM]

"…who shares New Jersey's values"? Where do they get off? I mean, I know that NOM long ago made the choice to not let actuality guide the organizational verbiage, but this claim about about an anti-equality candidate, in this state that so fully and regularly polls in favor of equality, would seem to be a stretch, even for this truth-challenged crew.

If New Jersey voters happen to value abject mischaracterization as much as they clearly value the freedom to marry, then NOM might be on to something. Otherwise, NOM might be in for yet another sad election night.
