RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) North Carolina voters have approved a constitutional amendment defining marriage solely as a union between a man and a woman, making it the 30th state to adopt such a ban.
With 35 percent of precincts reporting Tuesday, unofficial returns showed the amendment passing with about 58 percent of the vote to 42 percent against.

The current number are actually 61-39.
Lugar gone, fag “marriage” banned.
Good news is breaking out all over the place.
God bless the good people of North Carolina.
Bump (you should excuse the expression)!
Geez, I'd bet the 39 are democrats.
North Carolina and Indiana... Barometer for November?
And those tar heel fags are probably heading here to mexifornia to get hitched. Like we need more of these freaks.
Not one state has ever approved gay marriage, when the people were allowed to vote for it.
So of course, the libs in NC will fish out some liberal judge and get it declared unconstitutional.
Don’t be too sure. In the privacy of the voting booth, Richard (”Let’s HOMOSEXUALIZE the military”) Burr may have voted against it. Come to think of it, both of his very dainty sons may have opposed it as well!
I don't want to jinx the country, but maybe the MSM has done so much propagandizing and artificially pumping up n0bama's ratings that it's got conservatives scared to the point where they'll make sure they show up at the polls.
At the same time the government handout crowd is becoming so overconfident, that they'll figure "Ahhh Bama's so far ahead, why bother going to the polls. We'll just stay home eating pork rinds and drinking malt liquor."
Dare to hope.
Thank you... it was our pleasure here in N.C. to vote against it.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I heard that people feared that happening. That's why this is a state constitutional amendment.
We thank you so much North Carolina. This is truly huge. I cannot wait to see what happens tomorrow. Heads will
be exploding coast to coast.
What a misleading headline. Sounds as if gay marriage was approved.
Another big thank you to NC GOP voters! I’ve been “severely” bummed since Newt dropped out & this along w/Lugar’s loss gives me hope.
You don’t expect accuracy or clarity or truth from the AP, do you?
They spin everything to make the left look intelligent, sympathetic, and caring and the right to look stupid, and cold, and selfish.
When a major agenda item for the left goes down in defeat, they’ll paint it somehow as a win for their side, all to create a spirit of defeat for conservatives.
And let me add that since news is going online, AP editorial standards are in the latrine. Before, they were biased but at least their articles adhered to some sort of journalistic standards and style guides. Now they are biased and their writing is atrocious.
