Maine Overturns Gay Marriage.

( – promoted by Garrett)

According to the Bangor Daily News Maine’s “Questions 1” to overturn gay marriage passed by a 53% to 47% margin.  The 6% margin of victory surprised some people because recent polling showed the measure losing by a 52% to 43% margin.  These results are consistent with similar measures around the country where support for marriage as a union between one man and one woman consistently outperforms polling data.  In this case, the actual result was 15% better than this particular poll.  This measure was also passed after a gay marriage law was put into effect.
