UFI Reader Poll: If a measure to repeal California’s Prop 8 were placed on the ballot, would it pass?

Here’s this week’s question:

“If a measure to repeal California’s amendment banning same-sex marriage were to be successfully placed on the ballet in 2012, do you think it would pass? (thereby repealing Prop 8)”

Here is how UFI readers responded:

17 Percent                           Yes

75 Percent                           No

 8  Percent                           Not sure

 An effort is currently underway to determine if it would be a wise decision to attempt to repeal California’s amendment banning same-sex marriage in the state (Prop 8).   Supporters of same-sex marriage have held “town halls” among their constituency to determine whether there is support for a drive to collect the signatures to place the repeal language on the 2012 California ballot.  Then, of course, they still have to run the actual campaign for their repeal effort to succeed.

Prop 8 is slated to be tied up in the courts for years to come and some gay advocates want something done much sooner.    But a repeal effort is not without substantial risks for homosexual advocacy.  Some fear that if the effort is unsuccessful it could have a negative impact on the way Prop 8 plays out in the courts and it also sends another negative message to the country that not even citizens in the ultra-liberal state of California are supportive of same-sex marriage.
