Jake Gellar-Goad commented on the blog post NC: latest PPP poll shows voters do not know how extreme the marriage discrimination is
I think it is very important to make the people understand that voting against this amendment will NOT make same-sex marriage legal.
I’m not sure the messaging from our side is tapping into that yet very much. Most of what I’ve seen is that “if this passes, it will damage the marriages of LGBT couples and their kids” which is an important and true message, and not the one the polling seems to say will work at all. The polling seems to say making sure people know this ends straight couples domestic partnerships, and gay peoples domestic partnerships, and prevent the possibility of civil unions, and end domestic violence protections for some gay or straight, and end other existing rights.
I would like to see ads that feature gay & straight couples from North Carolina that will lose existing rights if this passes.
