Skip to comments.Blacks help push Maryland toward gay marriage
Posted on 05/25/2012 4:38:11 AM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
The nations changing views on same-sex marriage and new support from black leaders could put Maryland on track toward becoming the first state to cast a public vote in favor of gay marriage, according to a poll released Thursday.
The survey from liberal-leaning Public Policy Polling showed 57 percent of Maryland voters would vote for gay marriage if it is put to referendum this fall and just 37 percent would vote against it a stark departure from past polls by the firm and other groups that have shown Marylanders to be almost evenly divided on the issue.
More than 30 states have put same-sex marriage to a statewide vote and all have rejected it. North Carolina voted handily this month to define marriage as between a man and woman.
Maryland is one of four states that could put the issue on the ballot this November, and many supporters and opponents acknowledge that growing public support for same-sex marriage and the states left-leaning politics could make this one of the closest votes yet.
Were going to have to earn the voters support and make sure that they understand our position, said Derek McCoy, executive director of the Maryland Marriage Alliance, which has led opposition to the law. Even though the numbers show that we are very tight Maryland is going to be a very hard place for [gay-marriage supporters] to win.
Marylands gay-marriage law was passed in February but is not slated to go into effect until January. It is widely expected that opponents will gather the required 55,736 valid voter signatures by June 30 to send the law to a November referendum.

Maryland “Freak State” PING!
This along should make the data suspect. Is the Washington Times going wobbly?
Where the rubber meets the road...
Maryland is going to vote on celebrating sodomy...with blacks obedient to their glorious leader? Let’s take it to a vote then. Let’s see if Judeo-Christian values still exist in the first Catholic state.
He showed his approval of the media condemnation of Zimmerman before evidence was in- and look at the black on white attacks it has caused.
This is a dangerous, dangerous man.
Well .... that's a start. Maybe they'll eventually get around to practicing traditional marriage as well one of these days.
Did you see that article yesterday that showed a 26% shift in black support for gay marriage since bammers’ announcement?
Black > God’s Word
The fascist Left would have us believe that it’s all over, the election has been held before anyone’s voted. This is their typical demoralizing tactic.
Don’t believe a word of it.
Thanks Tolerance Sucks Rocks. A subsequent question should have been, would you support this if *Obama* were not running for reelection?
Raising the Down Low Up High.
“Lift Every Voice And Sing”, eh?
If this poll were true, the homo-Nazis wouldn’t be fighting so hard to keep a vote from happening. They should even be gathering signature petitions to bring this for a vote, but they aren’t.
Push poll trash...thats all this is. Done by the left all the time to lead the ignorant masses that comprise their base. “Don’t be on the losing bigoted hate-filled side!” is what it would actually say if it were honest!
Some people don't want the pollster to think they are bigoted.
Skin color, along with orders from black "leaders", spiced with the promise of some more of that "0bama munny" will win the day every time.
Which brings us to the fact that the biggest bullies in the world come from the left and over the issue of Abortion, Homosexuality and spending. Don't do it their world-view way and you are a "fill-in-the-blank"!
I was witness to this just a few days ago in a post between myself and very left leaning friend on facebook. Yes! we argue quite hard, no, we mostly do not agree. It comees down to faith and world view and such...However, my NOT espousing the fruadulant view of being "Born Gay" was met with her friend demanding why she was "friends with this dickwad anyway??" She had to "admonish" me for my ignorant ways. I told her friend what she was doing and that she is less of a friend to her than I was. I would never "Require" her to adopt my ways or views, but that we understood we both were weapons free to argue them.
The left DOES NOT BELIEVE IN THIS...AT ALL!!! They are in fact the most closed minded of people with a superiority complex that does not allow for other views. Do not view as they do and all are authroized to hate you...Its how they roll!
This poll is BS. The Washington Times should know better.
