Are you aware that the News and Observer is incorrectly reporting the results of your poll???

"The Public Policy Polling survey released Tuesday shows 54 percent of primary voters support making marriage between one man and one woman the only legal union recognized in North Carolina – down four percentage points from a month ago.

Black voters favor the amendment 59 to 31 percent, and even Democratic primary voters are split evenly. The referendum needs a majority for approval."

Here's all I have to say on this subject...
Let all people marry whomever they want.
God (If you are a believer) is the only judge, and does all the punishing, he actually told us not to do those things. Do not assume that you can do Gods job; he does not need your help!
If you are not a believer; stop trying to force your morality, or values on others through the law, or politics; you just can't do it! People will do as they please anyway!
Homosexuality is not a disease, it is not contagious! Homosexuals will not try to "convert" you or your children!
I know I'll probably lose friends, get hate mail, or at the worse get attacked for my opinion, but it's mine and as of the last tine I checked, I have the right to express it. And finally, the recognition of Homosexual marriage is inevitiable! If we don't recognize it, our kids, or grandkids will...so why make people suffer needlessly for another generation or two...let people choose their own lifestyle ( they are gonna do it anyway) and try loving all people and letting them be free to persue Life, Liberty, and Happiness! Not to do so is foolish, and cruel, lighten up...life will still be the same for us, and better for them, I can see no harm in that. Thank You for your time.

An editorial by the GM of WECT-TV6, Wilmington, NC today indicated that the implications of the amendment are unclear. What is clear is that the state will spend millions in legal costs in the years ahead for the courts to untangle the mess it will cause if approved.

In my opinion, no constitutional amendment should ever deny or limit rights and liberties. Furthermore, the government should not be the bully that enforces church dogma. Popes, bishops, rabbis, priests and pastors, etc. can't get their message across to the people from the pulpit but they will be able to call upon the unholy, dreaded government to act as the "temple police" if this scheme passes.

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2017

We came to PPP after a public poll in the San Jose Mayoral race showed our opponent ahead by 8 points. They found our candidate (Sam Liccardo) ahead by 3 points and that allowed us to be able to push back with the press against the perception that our opponent was now a strong favorite in the race. Sam ended up winning by 2 points and is now the next Mayor of San Jose. PPP worked very fast and had a very accurate read on the electorate when we needed them

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
