Majority Of CA Voters Oppose Gay Nup Ban


Here’s some promising news out of California, where a majority of voters say they oppose Proposition 8, a measure that would overturn this year’s gay marriage win:

A majority of California voters oppose a ballot initiative to ban gay marriage, though they are evenly split on the practice itself, according to a poll released Wednesday.

A majority of likely voters, 54 percent, oppose ending gay marriage, compared with 40 percent who support it, the poll said. The result is similar to the findings of a Field Poll in July, which found that 51 percent of likely California voters opposed ending gay marriage, while 42 percent said they supported it.

But when it comes to general attitudes about gay marriage, voters in the Public Policy Institute poll are evenly split, at 47 percent for and against – as they have been for the past three years.

Eh. That’s fine by us. Just don’t go revoking any hard fought rights…
