American "family" association freaks out: Gay marriage poll

Gay Marriage Poll Gets Annulled



02:00 AM Jan. 22, 2004 PT

When the American Family Association posted an online poll last month asking its constituents their position on gay marriage, it thought it was engaging in a straightforward exercise.

The conservative organization supports a constitutional amendment defining marriage as strictly between a man and a woman, and it planned to forward to Congress the results of the poll, which it expected would support its position, as evidence of Americans' opposition to gay marriage.

But the AFA never counted on the power of the Internet.

1. yeah!!!!
We kicked ass on that one!

There must be a lot of "homosexual activists" out there to drum up well over half a million votes opposing the AFA.

Nice work to all who voted. :bounce:

2. One interesting percentage in the article.
51.45% of respondents were against same sex marriage. That was before their little poll got out to the rest of the internet community. 51.45% is just a little over half...so does that mean that 48.55% of their respondents are in support of same sex marriage/union??

For such a RW website, that's not too bad.

3. A fair representation
Of the general populace according to most polls...but I doubt they were really looking for the truth.

They even say something about it 'leaking from its intended audience'
