The reason Prop 8 has not been put on the ballot is because of the case working its way through the courts. And also because polling showed another referendum would be very close. That's not the case any longer.
Those were also reasons but I read the "gay" weekly newspaper, "The Bay Area Reporter" and in several articles right after Prop 8 passed and the "gay" community was trying to decide what to do it said one of the reasons the "gay" community would probably decide not to mount a campaign to repeal Prop 8 and instead wait to see what happened in the courts was that the supporters of same sex marriage spent so much money fighting Prop 8 they wouldn't have enough money to mount a campaign to put a repeal of Prop 8 on the 2012 ballot.
That's not me saying it. That's your own people saying it.
Do have any idea how much the gay marriage opponents were out raised in the November referendums? In Washington alone, the pro gay marriage side raised 14 million while the opponents raised around 3 million. What makes you think Cali would be any different, especially with all the Silicon Valley money that will flow to the pro repeal side?
Thanks for the info.
Obviously, the opponents of same sex marriage knew it was highly unlikely that they could stop same sex marriage in liberal Washington so they decided to save their money to be used in other battleground states like California.
Also, that means the same sex supporters will have $14,000,000 less to spend on any pro same sex marriage ballot measure that is put on the California ballot if Prop 8 is upheld.
