Does this mean Snowe and Collins have to stay in the closet?

Father God please don’t let gay’s marry.

When I got married, the minister performing the marriage said ‘let no man put asunder’.!

This one is going to be very tight, though trending the right way. Keep praying.

I’m not celebrating just letting folks know the latest numbers I have seen. Link is to the Newspaper website, so others can check as time goes by.

I agree a 1 point margin with 72% still uncounted is certainly to close to get excited about, it was just meant as an update.

Unfortunately the left managed to get legal medical marijuana on the same ballot as the homosexual agenda which means it may win.

We shouldn't count our chickens yet on this one.Maine has attracted *substantial* numbers of pervs in the last 20 years or so.I'll wager that they constitute a greater number of Maine's population than they do in any other state...including CA.

***********************

That’s an understatement! Liberal, tolerant, and very gay in some parts, i.e., Ogunquit and other towns.

Unfortunately the legal marijuana passed (it is at 61% with 38% votes in), I meant that the pot heads might be enough to block the pro marriage measure banning homosexual “marriage”.

10% think it's OK.

40% think it's nobody's business.

Ok, now its saying 51% vote in 50.31% reject Gay Marriage.

Looks like a nailbiter

You get out into the sticks of Maine, and you are way, way out. Either up in the “County” or back west up near Rangley. They are small, but not archaic. Probably dealing with some old technology, but the delays are probably more due to distance getting the ballots back to the courthouse....

Same difference to me. Like saying 10% think prostitution is ok, 40% think it is nobody’s business. I think both are wrong and if they must exist, they should exist in the closet.

For folks unfamiliar with Maine:

The state has been under a constant flood of liberals and moonbats moving there for 30 + years. As per moonbat motive, they have gotten themselves involved with local gov., elections, school board etc. to help the ignorant natives of Maine whom they find ‘ quaint, better seen than heard and in need of enlightenment ‘.

The numbers of people you meet there who were not born there stagger the imagination. Once a solid Republican state with exceptional natives the state is a damned mess of moonbats.

Yep. I sure appreciate the influx of brainless leftist asshats moving into Utah from California after they turned it into an unsustainable socialist dungheap.

Oddly enough, the rural areas don’t seem to reporting any more slowly than York or Cumberland counties. HUGE prosodomy vote out of Cumberland.

This isn’t going to last forever.

The way the trend is, Over the next 5-10 years we’ll be suffering defeat on alot of these gay marriage referendums.
