Sea Change?

“Tuesday’s [election] results will show how far attitudes to gay marriage have changed. Florida and Arizona will join California in voting on whether to stop gay marriage. In the past, such propositions have almost always been approved, but polls show a close finish in California and many undecided in all three states.” [Reuters]

      Unfortunately, “undecided” probably means that they want to vote Yes on it, but don’t think it sounds P.C. to admit that.

      Actually- Fredo thats inaccurate. There is no gay bradley effect as per a recent article (sorry can’t find the link) on the subject. As a practical matter, however, that makes sense. People don’t feel they need to lie (which is required for such effects to assist) to pollsters as they have religion as a ready made excuse.

      By the way- I think the prop in FL will fail due to the threshold vote. Unfortunately, I believe the one in AZ will pass, but may include, if I am not mistake, a provision for civil unions or domestic partnerships??? Not sure if this is correct. I also thinkt he chances in CA are better than we think, but maybe I am being an optimist.
