Campaign Against NC Marriage Amendment Not Yet Gathering Much Steam

 

Democrat-leaning Public Policy Polling -- which is based in North Carolina -- is doing its best to claim momentum is shifting against the Marriage Amendment.

Their most recent poll has voters favoring the amendment 54-40-6 while last month they found support at 58-38-4.

Getting into the weeds of the most recent poll, it appears to oversampled female, Democratic and young voters (compared to who is actually voting so far).

Our experience time and time again is that marriage under-performs when polled compared to how people actually vote when granted the privacy of a voting booth.

As we wrote in our fundraising email this week, final victory in North Carolina, like every victory for marriage, will be dependent on how many resources (human and financial) we are able to gather for communicating our message to voters and encouraging them to vote!
