Two Polls Show Gay Marriage Ban Passing
Outraised by $10 million and with polls taking a turn, now showing Prop 8 winning, opponents of the initiative that seeks to eliminate gay marriage on the November ballot sent out a "critical" e-mail this afternoon saying that their "worst nightmares are coming true."
Today we learned of the massive $25.4 million our opponents have raised so far. They are using this war chest to broadcast lies: 24/7 and up and down the state of California. And the polls show the lies are working. We need your donation now.
Yesterday’s CBS 5¹ poll shows that:
"...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."
People change their minds about Proposition 8 when they hear the lie that churches will lose their tax-free status if they won’t marry same-sex couples -- EVEN THOUGH THIS IS NOT TRUE!
So this is crunch time. With less than a month before the election, we must get on the air now to answer these lies and swing votes back to our side.
