Poll Shows Wisconsinites Split on Ban

This weekend, WisPolitics.com released a poll that showed an even split over the civil unions and marriage ban. The pollsters asked 600 randomly selected Wisconsin adults whether they would vote yes or no on the ban.

Of the sample, 48.5 percent said they would vote for it, 47.8 percent against, and 3.7 percent refused or didn’t know.

That’s darn exciting news, but it’s not exactly time for us to sit back and relax. The old cliché is so true -- the only poll that matters is the one on Election Day.

But the great thing about this poll is that it suggests our two years of grassroots voter education are paying off. Wisconsinites are paying attention, taking a close look at the two sentences of the ban, and are realizing how hurtful and far-reaching it is. We just have to keep doing what we're doing, and ultimately make sure these people actually vote come Election Day.

Here are a few weekend articles about the poll from the Associated Press, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Wisconsin State Journal, and the Gannett Papers (which run in the northeast and central region of the state).

Who is this Lori Pickens, and her "Vote Yes for Marriage" group? We've not heard of them before? Are they different from Julaine Appling and FRI?

"Vote Yes for Marriage" is FRI's official campaign group. I haven't seen a website yet, but I expect it will be coming soon.
