New Survey Shows We’re Changing Minds

Posted on 24 November 2008 by admin

DailyKos brought this survey about public opinion about Prop 8 since the election to my attention, and it holds what could be good news.  It found that 8% of the the people who voted for Prop 8 have changed their minds since the election.  Even better, 13% of Blacks who voted for Prop 8 have changed their mind.

People were evenly split on the effect of the rallies and protests. However, when you break it down, people of color seem to think that they have helped.  Whites were the only group who said that they’ve hurt. I’ve wondered if we’ve gained some “street cred” with other minority groups through our protests, and this seems to confirm that hypothesis.

Of course, like with any survey, this if far from a finding of fact.  As the question on how people voted shows, the survey does not seem to mesh with the exit poll data that has been reported.  That doesn’t mean that the questions about shifting perceptions are invalid, however. The survey does indicate that at least in this group, the protests are having a positive overall effect.

Targeting Mormons Unfair?

Equality California estimates that Mormons donated as much as $20 million to Prop. 8, while the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal group, gave $1.25 million to the effort and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, $200,000.
