Two new polls show Yes on 8 campaign has taken a lead!

Two new statewide polls released in the past two days show that the Yes on 8 campaign has taken a lead!



Yesterday, the CBS/Survey USA showed that Yes on 8 is leading by a margin of 47% Yes to 42% No. That is a shift of ten points since our ad campaign began.



Just today, Equality California briefed the gay media about their own campaign poll conducted by Lake Research Partners showing our campaign leading by a margin of 47% Yes to 43% No. A week ago that poll had us behind by five points.



They attributed the sudden shift in voter attitudes to, “Yes on 8 is raising more money, and its most recent ad campaign is highly effective.”



Clearly, our campaign is resonating with California voters.



While our advertising is powerful and provocative, it is the message we are conveying that is persuading voters to support Proposition 8.



For the first time, voters are beginning to understand that there are very significant consequences to all Californians because of the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage decision.

God willing the people of California will vote to protect marriage from the homosexual onslaught on November 4th

The Protect Marriage Coalition reported today that it has received contributions of nearly 22.8 million dollars since the first of June when Proposition 8 qualified for the ballot in California.



This, added to earlier contributions of 2.4 million dollars last Spring, brings the total dollars raised in support of Protect Marriage to $25.4 million.



The state filing by the Protect Marriage Coalition today was nearly 5,000 pages long, recording tens of thousands of individual donations.




Protect Marriage campaign manager Frank Schubert acknowledged the enormous fund-raising success “shows the strength of our cause and the tremendous grassroots support for traditional marriage across the state.”



About two-thirds of all donations received have been $100 or less. Over 62,000 donations have been received to date. Ninety-five percent of all donations have come from within California.

Glass houses. The same thing could be said about the donations toward supporting the defeat of the proposition

there is a HUGE difference between donating money to protect your civil rights from being eliminated, and donating money to promote bigotry and endorse the marginalization of minority communities of law abiding citizens.

This might surprise some of you, but I think Proposition 8 should be defeated. Why? Because of the precedent it would set. Government give the right for gays to marry in California. Now government allows the opportunity to take that right away.



This is different from other states. Gay marriage is now legal in California. Making it illegal is unquestionably taking a right away that was previously granted.



Even if gay marriage disgusts you, you should consider that this same thing could happen on an issue that would effect you more directly.

Why shouldn't children of gay families have the same stability encouraged by marriage that children of heterosexual families benefit from?
