Prop 8 Losing Support In California


Good news out of California, readers!

With less than two weeks to go until election day, more and more voters are saying they’ll oppose Proposition 8, a ballot measure looking to overturn same-sex nuptials in the Golden State. And, not surprisingly, the lines are drawn largely by party affiliation:

Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment that would end same-sex marriage in California, is losing among likely voters, 52 percent to 44 percent, according to a statewide survey released today by the Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) with funding from The James Irvine Foundation.

Compared to last month, more Republicans (70% today, 62% September) would vote yes on the measure, which would eliminate the right for same-sex couples to marry that the state Supreme Court granted in May.

Opponents of the measure live primarily in urban areas, like Los Angeles and around San Francisco bay, while supporters live in less cosmopolitan towns. Shocking, right?

The fight’s far from over, so donate to the No on 8 campaign – or else!
