Another Poll Shows a Tight Race
The most recent poll on the civil unions and marraige ban once again shows this is going to be a very tight race.
According to the WISC-TV-sponsored survey, 48 percent of those polled said that they would vote for the amendment if the November election were held today. About 40 percent oppose the measure and 12 percent said that they are undecided.We all know Election Day results are the only real gauge on the issue-- not the polls-- but that undecided 12 percent is a good sign. It shows all of our hard work is paying off and people are starting to read the ban more carefully. University of Wisconsin political science professor Charles Franklin agrees. From this Chanel3000 story:
The telephone poll randomly called 600 likely voters over a three-day period from Aug. 14 to 16. The margin of error in the survey is 4 percent.
Franklin said that he also believes the narrow gap determined by the survey results suggests the strength of Fair Wisconsin, the group heading the effort to defeat the amendment.
