State House News Pollster Gerry Chervinsky:
"If that indeed is the wording [of the 2008 amendment], and the question goes forward, I see a bitter fight," Chervinsky said. "But remember, these ballot questions are hard to poll. It's the world of the hidden vote, where people want to tell you the politically correct thing. But when they get into the voting booth and pull the shades, they go "hmmm, maybe I won't vote the way they think I should." That could indicate a hidden vote in favor of the gay-marriage ban, Chervinsky cautioned.That is why civil rights issues should never go to the ballot box. If interracial marriage, a women's right to vote or segregation was put to a vote do people really believe voters would have allowed it? We still have a 1913 law on our books in Massachusetts that was written to protect interracial marriage ban in other states.
A big thank you goes out to MassNews for the link to this story. If you ever need a good laugh in the early morning hours head to MassNews, they are humorous (although I'm sure it's unintended). You can read how they still expect the Mass. Legislature to vote to remove 4 Superior Court Judges. You can also read in detail about their fascination with Superior Court Judge Margaret Marshall. Their patron Representative in the House is Emile Goguen (D-Fitchburg). For more information on Goguen see Mass Marrier.
