This Gay Marriage Poll Shows An Incredible Shift In Black Support Since Obama's Endorsement
Business Insider ^ | 05/24/2012 | Brett LoGiurato

Posted on 05/24/2012 10:03:20 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Public Policy Polling is out with a new survey this morning on the gay marriage referendum likely to be on the Maryland ballot this fall

It's historic, because it shows that Maryland is likely to pass—by a wide margin—the referendum holding up the bill that lawmakers passed in late February. It's incredible because of the shift in previous polls, particularly among black voters in Maryland. 

Check out this flip: In March, 56 percent of black respondents said they would vote against the law, with only 39 percent supporting it. Now, 55 percent of black voters plan to support it, with only 36 percent opposing it.

That's a 36-point swing in two months.

Gay marriage support

Public Policy Polling

It shows the effect that a string of recent endorsements is having on voters, first from President Obama before other politicians and groups followed suit

But I thought the PCGOP said that if they just pander enough and go far enough left, they can appeal to the “fundamentally conservative” values of minority voters...

Sounds like Obama is providing ‘leadership’ to the black community. Since 2008 I have been astonished at how the black church is black first, Christian second.

Black voters do whatever their Black President tells them to do? Nothing else matters? Just skin color?

Maryland must find a way to reverse the polling numbers on the gay marriage referendum or if they can’t, the referendum on gay marriage should be cancelled and sent to a conservative federal court.

If Maryland does pass the Gay Marriage referendum, we need a full boycott of the state, which would include athletes refusing to play for or against the Baltimore Orioles and Baltimore Ravens.

No travel on business or pleasure to Maryland.

A complete boycott of all companies that conduct business in Maryland or have employees in Maryland.

What further proof you need Obama is the Moses and Jesus of our time. He writes a new commandment from the balcony of the White House, Thou Shall Bless Gay Marriage, and his followers sing Amen in unison.

You are correct. The only thing that has changed is that black respondents to the poll are more reluctant to tell the truth now that President Obama has endorsed it.

For the Lemming Class, when the issue is Morals vs. Free Stuff, then Free Stuff wins every time.

If ObaMao declared he favored naked flagpole sitting, then naked flagpole sitting would instantly become popular among the Lemming Class.

The ALL Black Democrat Churches are NON Christian, this is not new, but now they can no longer pretend.

It`s a crying shame because they come from a rich tradition of Christianity,aside from the last 40 years or so.

It was clear they were NON Christian after going along with 60 million + abortions, and with no remorse for removal of Christ/prayer from classroom/Public square etc.

They have been feigning outrage over the possibility of gay marriage over the years, but the fact that they are caving on this last Christian issue is No surprise whatsoever.

The black Church (Democrat Black Church) gave up on Christ and Christianity some years ago, now it is clear for all to see. The black Democrat Church is just a social club, no wonder their children have been imprisoned etc more than the rest.

If they had been Christian, if they had the Spirit of Christ within them, they would have been WEEPING with us for the unborn, but they could care less, and now it is clear to ALL that they have no problem with young children being taught they can have a boyfriend or a girlfriend.

They have No worries about what Jesus said, If anybody harms one of these little ones.....

Catholic Democrats also have blood on their hands, other groups as well

We need to return to the Founder’s vision that only people who own property can vote. They can be women; they can be black; but citizens should have to have a piece of land or a profitable business to vote. Owners who are spouses can confer voting rights to stay-at-home partners for a period of years during active childrearing or retirement.

Agreed. Baltimore is a cesspool. I grew up in Western Maryland and can say everything West of Frederick is more conservative and Christian than the Eastern part. Hopefully the people who would support this don't turn out to vote.

Over the last few decades black Americans have been trained well. I suppose that is offensive to say but it is still true.

The Democratic party has seen to it that black society is absolutely dependent on the government and happy to be so. The party uses black leaders to influence and sway opinion in the desired direction. And that direction is: race loyalty is number one and everything else comes second.

The Democratic leadership has decided that the new official black position is Pro gay marriage. Black Americans will fall into line. They HAVE to. It's ingrained in them now. After all, the whole world wants them dead except for the Democratic party, right? They must be loyal Democrats. They can't refuse. All their deepest beliefs must be tossed aside if that's what it takes to show their solidarity. They will now adopt the pro gay marriage agenda. Their pastors will adopt the pro gay marriage agenda. They must vote for Obama. A vote for Obama is a vote for their momma, their uncles, their cousins, their families.

Are you black? Do you want to stay a member of the family? Then adopt the new position. Look at all we've done for you. We love you. Aren't you grateful to us? We need your support. Just do this for us. We'll have your back. We'll make it up to you later. Hey, we sent you to college. We made sure you got that home loan. Without us you'd be nothing. If not for us white people would still call you n*****s and beat you in the street. You owe us everything. All we ask is that you accept gay marriage. Is that so hard? Don't you love us? We love you...

This is so true. I have a few very Christian black friends who can recite the Bible chapter and verse but no matter what 0bama does, they support him. I confront them with 0’s position on abortion/partial birth and they said “these women just have to have a choice”. I say why can’t they choose to keep their legs closed?

Black trumps God everytime with 97% of these people.

The problem of solutions to the black problem that aim too high

In today’s post, “Why Baltimore is in such bad shape,” David J. argues that the low average IQ of black (and white) Baltimorians is the reason for that city’s intractable problems. In response, Irv P. tells about the time he told an intelligent black New York City school principal that her innovations, no matter how well thought out, could not work, because the school population simply lacked the talent to profit from them.

Just goes to show how incredibly stupid the so-called political experts are when they think that the black vote will be alienated from Obama by anything he does.

He will continue to get their votes with a percentage in the 90s no matter what.

Gay marriage is truly an assault on fatherhood. Once you eliminate the father as a focal point in the family, conservative ideas flounder as there’s noone to teach them to kids. Better looking lesbians will easily find sperm donors and viola’, instant lesbian family unit.
