California Poll: Prop 8 Ahead by a Nose


The latest SurveyUSA poll shows 48 percent of likely California voters support Prop 8 with 45 percent opposed. That’s down from a 5 point lead in last week’s Survey USA today.    An emergency appeal  by pro-gay marriage advocates in response to poor poll showing has led to a flood of Hollywood money (Steven Bing, that great marriage advocate, gave $500,000) and a $1 million lead gift from California teachers’ unions. Their ad campaign is having an effect.   The Yes on 8 Protect Marriage campaign is fighting back with this “Everything to Do with Schools” ad.   Can the pro-marriage forces raise enough money to keep message parity with the ACLU/HRC/Labor unions/Hollywood crowd?    The next few days will tell.
