What I once thought was a vote guaranteed to deny gay marriage in NC may be a little more interesting now that Perdue has dropped out of the race. This will bring more Dems to the polls and less republicans may show up if Mitt has the nomination wrapped up by then.

How will you vote? For or against?

I'll be voting for it. Same people voting against it would vote against interracial marriage 30 years ago.

NC could be the state that swings the South.

edit: The amendment is to ban gay marriage....so I will be voting against it.

There is no way in hell something like this should even be on a ballot in 2012, so I am sure it will pass here in North Carolina.

Dont think it is that simple. Most rednecks would vote against both. More faith based votes would not care about the interracial thing since biblically, there is no issue.

It's already against NC state law, but I really don't care either way.

More than likely it will pass....and be codified in the NC state constitution. As far as generalizing what direction groups will vote, I'd be cautious about doing so. You'd be surprised what demographics change their normal voting patterns to make a decision on this.

When an initiative requires assumbed given voting blocs...it's dangerous when even 5% change.

To be honest, I think its ridiculous that we have to vote on this stuff. I don't give a poo who anyone has sex with or marries.

Bet that had more to do with religion than race.

Maybe right, but I'm just pointing out that stereotypes (rednecks) shouldn't be the sole generalization made here.

Giving rights to people who should have had them all along? I'm for it.


As said earlier, the same people voting against it would have voted against interracial marriage. Or even against desegregation. It is the same principle. You think a certain group of people don't deserve the same rights as you because they're different in a certain way that they cannot change.
