When Right is Wrong
On May 8, the LGBT community will face the first of at least five anti-gay marriage ballot initiatives in 2012. North Carolina, concurrent with both Republican and Democratic primary races, will vote to approve or reject Amendment One to the state’s constitution.
The conventional outlook that efforts to defeat this are hopeless was perfectly summed up by the proprietor of this site, when he said on Feb. 16:
Just looked it up latest PPP poll on that amendment, 56% in favor, 34% opposed. It’s going to pass.
It’ll be a while before we move the needle, on that issue, in any southern state, even the changing border ones.
A closer look reveals that the polling needn’t be considered as hopeless as all that.
