    ... it might have passed.

    What really hurt Prop 107 here was that it basically made any co-habitation illegal. It banned demostic partner benefits for everyone. And because of that, a lot of straight people that otherwise might have supported it, voted against it.

    The proposition would have become prevailing law so that localities could write their own demostic partnership rules. The ads against had police and firefighters, who weren't gay, urging a no vote, because several of the municipalities offer demostic partnership benefits and those would have been lost.

    I'm glad it failed. I don't support anti-gay marriage laws. But I think they simply overreached.
