Public Policy Polling says Amendment One will pass easily — UNLESS voters get it that the amendment would ban not only same-sex marriage in North Carolina but also any other form of legal recognition, i.e., a civil unions statute, for same-sex couples.
Right now, the voters don’t get it. And they’re not hearing it, or hearing it clearly, from the anti-Amendment One campaign. In my humble ….
Here’s what Tom Jensen of PPP says:
When voters are informed that the amendment bans both gay marriage and civil unions their tune changes quite a bit. Only 41% of voters say they’ll support it knowing that, while 42% are opposed. So despite the large current lead for the amendment, there is some hope for those trying to defeat it. It’s just going to take a lot of education and effort over the final six weeks to make sure voters really understand exactly what they’re voting on.
