This is the percentage of the loss of support in the anti-gay crowd. In 2000 Prop. 22 (which was declared to be unconstitutional), 60% of voters who voted voted against gays and lesbians. But this new anti-gay Proposition 8 is on the verge of possibly passing with ONLY 52%. Now the probable passing of Prop. 8 is disappointing, but it should all give us hope. The anti-gay side lost a whopping 8% of their support base. I noticed that the anti-gay crowd who are patting themselves on the back today for taking away a right can’t get themselves to state how close the vote really was. They only say it was passed by a majority. It was, but a bare majority. And one even stated that it was passed by ‘droves.’ Yeah.
Luckily the trend will continue. Next year it will be 51%. The year after 50%. Who knows, it may drop even faster. They just barely won this time (if they actually have won). Their time in the sun is nearly over. Justice always wins in the end. And maybe all the lawsuits that have been filed will kill this proposition faster than their support is dropping.
