New Elway Poll Shows Reject R-74 Has Made Up 10 Point Deficit!

 

Pro Referendum-74 (gay marriage) activists have been on the airwaves for months. Our side went up on the air a little over a week ago and a new Elway poll suggests momentum is now moving our way -- the closer gay marriage comes to becoming a reality, the more people reject it:

BREAKING NEWS: new Elway poll shows that support for Referendum 74 has dropped from a 14 point advantage in September, to a 4 point advantage in October, 49-45. That is within the margin of error making it a statistical tie! As voter's learn the facts, support for same-sex "marriage" collapses. Keep spreading truth! -- Family Policy Institute of Washington

More than that, the Elway poll reports "Opposition to Referendum 74 has grown over the past month while support has stayed at virtually the same level since July."

Here is their graphic illustrating the lack of movement in support of same-sex marriage despite months of pro Referendum-74 ads:

Local Washington press is not reporting the results of this poll yet. The Seattle Times reported the other results from the same poll but fails to mention the momentum against Referndum-74.

    An article posted here earlier said the polls are usually biased in favor of SSM by 7%. If that holds true in this election cycle, Marriage should win in all 4 states, keeping its perfect electoral record.

    The more you learn about pseudo-marriage, the less likely you are to support it. Kudos to Preserve Marriage WA and NOM for getting the truth out there.

    The Times isn't reporting the movement against R-74? Shocking! :)

    Turnout, people, turnout. This is not in the bag, and the poll seems to be less democratic then most.

    The press is biased because of this:
    http://www.nytimes.com/1993/09/10/us/gay-journalists-leading-a-revolution.html?pagewanted=all&src=pm

    What you're reading was probably written by a homosexual. If not, a homosexual probably edited it for bias (injecting bias).

    Not familiar with Elway, but if those numbers are correct, marriage will be preserved in Washington.

    Conservatives turn out in droves to protect marriage, but the polls never consider the big turnout factor.

    Thanks Sean.

    Looking very good for marriage preservation in all four states now.

    Just need to get the ads on and get the vote out.
