      That’s not good at all. I have been a slacker and have not donated to the cause yet – will fix that right now.

      Thankfully polls are not real votes. I actually kind of wish that demoralizing polls were not reported on before the voting is all said and done.

      @DarkZephyr: The real fuck-up is that lame-brained Queerty posts are littered with inaccuracies and lousy on logic and thoroughness.

      I clicked the links and checked out the polling service. The same pollster grossly missed the mark when Ref. 71 (the everything but the word marriage civil unions) was voted on: the Elway poll showed it would be a close 48-44 result, when, the result was 54-46.

      In this year and case, Elway’s latest poll, per their own notes, used an adjustment factor of Democrats + 3. That means, once they have conducted their raw data collection, they adjust for the fact that there are more Dems than Reps in Washington State. THE BIG FUCKING FUCK-UP though, is that the number of more Dems over Reps is not 3%, but 14%. The Elway adjustment is BULLSHIT.

      The latest from Washington Poll, which uses an adjustment factor of Dem + 13, has the race at 54%-38% with 8% undecided.

      Come on Queerty, can’t you recruit at least 1 savvy journalist who understands journalism? And here I thought we gays were supposed to be good at recruiting.

      I like how in that ad “traditional marriage” has “stood the test of time”. That must be a pretty easy test to pass when about half of marriages end in divorce. Why don’t they go out and protest straight people getting divorced rather than gay people who would improve the statistics.
