  •  I think there is a good chance that it goes down (1+ / 0-)

    Reason: Money.  Wall Street and Silicon Valley will pump millions against this piece of shit.  That will give enough of an opportunity to craft a good moderate message to swing voters in the Indianapolis suburbs.

    The bigots will only have some of the neanderthal churches and will be heavily outspent.  And that will be the pattern for every one of these referendums (largely to repeal previous anti-gay referenda).

    I don't mean to jump the gun, but I'm not sure that there will be another case where the anti-gay side wins a ballot initiative.   (Maybe West Virginia). To think they were basically undefeated until 2012...

    •  Bigots could always call Foster Friess (0+ / 0-)

      Some rich fundamentalists with checkbooks are still around. But it does seem as though the moneyed classes really don't want anything to do with this stuff anymore, and the ones that do might not want to spend so freely after NOM's epic defeat last year.
