It's always fun to see the spin here... Tom, you always love to make a gigantic deal when Same-Sex marriage numbers look better to legalize SSM, but when the number move in the other direction, as they have here, albeit slightly, you don't mention that. Here, SSM is supported only 46-45. In June 2011, it was supported 48-42. I just needed to point that out.

Here is the june polling just as a source: http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/main/2011/06/oregon-in-favor-of-legal-gay-marriage-kitzhaber-solid.html

Note: Oregon does have domestic partner benefits. Passed by the legislature in 2007 and implemented in 2008.

Ummmm....Oregon already has civil unions, under the name of "Domestic Partnerships"--all the rights of marriage, just not the name:

Interesting how this poll shows a decline in support for gay marriage since last year, but you make no mention of that...yet when other state polls show support increasing, you trumpet that information as a sign of a great cultural shift and change in public opinion. Hmm, could it be perhaps that public opinion is not changing on this issue very much at all, and that your statements to the contrary were premature and motivated by bias? That's what I think.

In 20 years when gay marriage is still banned, I would love to see your reaction. This issue is a loser with the American people, obviously.

I should also add that calling people who believe marriage is between a man and woman "anti-equality" as you did in your twitter post is despicable, and does nothing to get people over to your side. Don't act shocked when voters continue to push back against the efforts of the left to smear them and their beliefs.

Why don't you guys try being a pollster for once, and keep your mouth shut about your personal opinions?

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?"
