Latest SurveyUSA Poll Slightly Positive

Timothy Kincaid

SurveyUSA has been polling discouragingly for the past month:

October 6

Yes 47%
No 42%

October 17

Yes 48%
No 45%

Today SurveyUSA released a poll that shows the proposition to be slightly failing.

Yes 47%
No 50%

I don’t place too much faith in SurveyUSA. However, I am encouraged that their polling is showing a trend towards a No vote.

Could it be a way to get the no voters to stay home and not vote…or get the yes voters out stronger so that it will pass? hum…I am just hoping that the NO voters will get out and and bring down these liars. Saturday I got something in the mail saying that Obama is supporting the yes campain…I did not read it all but they were placing him and Biden as if they were saying to vote Yes! So deceptive! But why should we be surprised!

I know you don’t trust SurveyUSA, but one thing that worries me: in the case of a ‘Bradley’-effect, SurveyUSA has been the only automated pollster. Thus, if people are loath to tell a live stranger that they support Prop. 8, SurveyUSA might reflect the results better than either Field or the other.

That being sad, I’m glad that this long nightmare is about to end.

If there is a trend showing, it looks like undecided voters slowly adhering more to the No side, which is a trend I don’t mind getting feeling good about, though I’m not going to let it get my hopes up or make me complacent.

Though…what am I talking about…it’s Monday before elections and I live in Oregon…there’s not much time left to me “not get complacent” during. Maybe now’s the time to put all of my emotional eggs in one basket.

All I can do now is hope to God that my damn California Ballot gets here today so I can fedex it back home in time.

Word to the Wise: Do NOT trust well-meaning voter registration gatherers who tell you that the USPS forwards election materials when you’re signed up with address forwarding service. This piece of misinformation may have cost me my vote in the most personally important election of my lifetime.

I was out campaigning this weekend and was highly outnumbered by the YES on 8ers. One of them assulted me. I was on the news 3 various times. I’ve blogged about it.

God I hope this doesn’t pass…

Pomo, sorry to hear about you being assaulted. Hope you are OK. Was this in Sacramento?


California – Vote “NO” on Prop. 8!
Arizona – Vote “NO” on Prop. 102! AGAIN!
Florida – Vote “NO” on Amendment 2!
Connecticut – Vote “NO” on Question 1!

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
