    that the polls are reflecting a swing back to No?  I am confident that even if the Pres race is called early, CA voters will still go to the polls, especially for this issue -- hoping the haters are demoralized and stay home, however.

      We should be OK if the 5% remaining undecided voters split evenly, or even 60-40. And the new round of ads from Magid Johnson, Samuel L. Jackson and the robocalls from Bill Clinton should help.  

      Electing a Republican is like hiring a carpenter who thinks hammers are evil.

        The robocalls have decreased overall this year (versus '06 when they came just about every day).  While I sometimes get irritated by robocalls, I was actually pleased to hear Clinton's No on 8 robocall on my answering machine.

        Bears hibernate for months. Congress hibernates for years. Is it "spring" yet?

    •  A small swing to no...with a bunch of undecideds (1+ / 0-)

      still. The bigger the Dem turnout the better the chance on no.

      Dems are motivated this year. In 2004 there a usually a dozen or so GOTV callers for Kerry here locally. Now there are literally hundreds on any given day. So, I'm positive we'll get people out. I'm just worried about the GOP turnout in Southern California. Maybe they'll be demoralized about McCain / Palin and stay home. Keeping my fingers crossed.

      John McCain and the Keating 5. John McCain and his lobbyists...then and now.

    •  Morning email says... (0+ / 0-)

      PROP 8:
      Field Poll (10/30) -- 44% Yes, 49% No, 7% Undecided
      Survey USA (11/1) -- 47% Yes, 50% No, 3% Undecided  

      Close, but it's looking hopeful.  Bust ass... and hope that the early news from the Eastern half of the country about Obama's landslide depresses wingnuttia.
