61 Percent of NH Republicans Favor 2009 Same Sex Marriage Rollback

Concord, NH — A recent poll shows a clear majority of New Hampshire Republican voters in the upcoming, first-in-the-nation primary support a legislative definition of marriage as the union between a man and a woman, along with a provision returning to civil unions.

The poll of 500 registered primary voters, conducted last month by the polling company, inc./WomanTrend, shows 61 percent of registered Republican primary voters favor legislation that restores traditional marriage, while allowing for civil unions. Only 33 percent oppose such legislation.

“With more than 3 out of 5 New Hampshire Primary voters favoring the restoration of marriage, the verdict is in: Republicans are united in the fight against the national agenda of wealthy, gay marriage lobbyists,” said Jason Rose of the July Fourth Forum PAC.

Rose said the poll affirms the will of New Hampshire voters, who in 2010 overwhelmingly voted against legislators that supported gay marriage after heavy lobbying by wealthy, out-of-state lobbyists and social activists, and instead ushered in a new majority in Concord favoring the restoration of traditional marriage.

    It's higher than that. People are careful careful when it comes to stating their opinions when it has the potential for subjecting them to violence from an aggressive opposition group, like BLTg-ers.

    I remember my folks used to lie about who they voted for when it was against the dominant party in our township. Nobody wants the BLTg-ers showing up at their house. Why risk it for a poll?

    People lie on polls because no one wants to be on the losing side of anything. And these results talk only about the Republicans, not the Democrats. Talk about skewing results.

    People should not e afraid to stand for God. Decent people know that gay marriage is an abomination to Him and you should never be afraid to say so. I lost a job because a gay man invited me to his gay wedding and I said I'm not into that so he harrassed me and got away with it because everyone was "afraid" to speak up. But God gave me a much better job because I was not afraid to take a hit for Him and it is because people are "afraid" to speak up that we have gay marriage in New York but we will prevail against it because God is with us.
