    I think what Ancblu is trying to note is that in that election conservatives were not motivated to get out and vote.  Liberal very much were.    

    If another vote occurred where there was no other liberal issues on the ballot, but a close and interesting conservative measure or primary, you could see a different outcome.

    Minority rights should never be subject to majority vote.

      is almost invariably less conservative and friendlier to marriage equality than actual voters, thus making winning a vote the higher hurdle to clear.
