Prop 8 Fight Too Close For Comfort


It’ll be a battle to the finish in California, where socially conservative voters are hoping to turn back gay marriage through Proposition 8.

The most recent numbers indicate a near even split in the Golden State, but the “Yes on 8” side still has a slight advantage:

…The measure is favored 48% to 45% among likely voters questioned in an Oct. 17 poll by Survey USA of Verona, N.J. The poll’s margin of error, four percentage points, means the results were a statistical tie.

A group leading the fight against the measure, Equality for All, said this week that one of its internal polls shows Proposition 8 leading by four percentage points. The close results of that poll, too, may suggest a dead heat as the Nov. 4 election approaches.

Those of you looking to preserve gay marriage in California must head over to the No on 8 website and send them some cash money. Or, more importantly, urge your West Coast chums to vote against Proposition 8.
