A very very funny comment by NOM

Timothy Kincaid

December 21st, 2012

Over on NOMblog, the page where the National Organization for Marriage (but not yours) reports every moment the anti-gay industry has a tiny temporary advance and rants on with the same tired old objections to reality, they are apoplectic that Newt Gingrich stuck his finger in the air to see which way the wind was blowing and said, “hot damn, that’s a gale, I’d better get on the pro-gay marriage train and fast!”. But amid the shock and horror of Newt, Newt, abandoning them, was this gem:

By an overwhelming 60% margin (according to a national survey conducted by Gingrich’s own pollster, Kellyanne Conway), the American people continue to believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman.

Ahem… perhaps Gingrich knows better than to believe Conway’s polling precisely because she’s his own pollster.

When I go into a business meeting – I don’t use the word “overwhelming” if just 60% support whatever I’m trying to sell.

@tim – in politics 50% + 1 is “overwhelming” support. Haven’t you watched the news in the last six months.

NOM will tout any poll that supports their agenda — even if they have to make up the results.

Conway obviously didn’t poll her serial adulterer boss.

Wouldn’t a “60% margin” mean 80% vs 20%?

I’d know better than to believe a polster like that too.

Yes, Argo. Just goes to show that NOM is as innumerate as they are dishonest.
