North Carolina Likely To Pass Gay Marriage Ban
The vote is Tuesday on a proposition that says, “Marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized.” Domestic partnerships and civil unions won’t even be recognized.
Most recent polls show that voters are likely to approve the ban on same-sex marriages and civil unions, although results differ substantially from survey to survey because of the wording of their questions.
The most recent poll was conducted by Civitas Institute, a conservative think tank whose poll results have generally shown little partisan bias in the past. That survey polled Democratic and Republican primary voters separately, but projected that the measure would win by 16 percentage points when it combined the results.
