Donate to Fight Prop 8 - We Are Losing!

According to a new CBS poll:

"Likely California voters overall now favor passage of Proposition 8 by a five-point margin, 47 percent to 42 percent. Ironically, a CBS 5 poll eleven days prior found a five-point margin in favor of the measure's opponents." (CBS)

This is a dangerous turn, considering opponents of proposition 8 were originally leading in the polls. What is also very troubling is the fact that young voters are overwhelmingly supporting a ban on marriage equality in California.

PLEASE spare some money and make a donation to one of the following organizations fighting proposition 8 to preserve marriage for all couples!

Total outlier. Opponents still leading significantly.

That's surprising news that younger voters would be supporting the ban! This really is horrible news.

T.R. it is surprising, a lot of people are criticizing the polls and statistics aren't always accurate, they could have just gotten a strange sample pop that wasn't representative. Hopefully they will release new polls that will show different results otherwise we are screwed.

I really don't trust polls most of the time and never had. I hope these results were just...atypical. Still, always helps to continue getting the news out there to vote against it...my History professor even mentioned Prop 8 one day during a lecture.

NO on Prop 8 campaign's internal poll shows they are losing by 4 points.

This vote will affect every gay person. If it passes anti-gay bigots will move on to repeal rights gay people already have and make sure gay people don't get any more.

Karma's a bitch, ain't it?

Next time, try not hating on transfolk so much.

Anonymous - Get a grip, you keep posting about gays & lesbians hating trans people. First off, this website is totally inclusive of all people. Second how do you know if im trans or cisgender? Don't jump to conclusions. The only hate I hear is from you hating gays and lesbians.
