Another Gay Marriage Poll Comes Out

A new Field Poll on Proposition 8, which proposes to limit marriage only between a man and a woman in California, says that it will fail by a slim majority (51%). In 2000, a similar proposition denying gay marriage was approved by 61%. Yes on Prop 8 people say the poll understates the support to ban gay marriage in the state (and others are calling them out their rebuttal). A May 23 poll by the LA Times and KTLA showed that Californians would "narrowly" reject same-sex marriages. So, what does all this mean? It means that there will be no telling how this prop will turn out until after election day.
