    I hope that marriage equality is passed by the voters!

    Polls indicate that marriage equality has the support of 57% of people in Maine. I personally predict and think that marriage equality will pass – but by only 51% voting YES!

    Washington State and Maryland voters as well are going to go to the polls to vote FOR or AGAINST marriage equality!

    My prediction is that Minnesota will by a vote of 51% approve a constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage (same as California which was 52%). And that voters will unfortionantly REJECT marriage equality in Washington State by 51% (49% APPROVE) and voters and Maryland will approve marriage equality by a vote of 52%.

    These are just my predictions. Bit we will see in 2 months time hey!

    1. While I’m not American, I will venture that marriage equality will pass in Maine, Maryland and Washington, but I agree that things don’t look good in Minnesotta.

      With 160,000 one-on-one conversations over three years, you have to admire the never-say-die determination and diligence and humble low-key approach of Maine LGBTs despite losing a referendum three years ago. I can’t think of anywhere else were LGBTs have worked so hard.
