The results and turnout in tomorrow’s Primary Day voting in North Carolina will be an important indication of Barack Obama’s chances for holding the Tar Heel State in his column next November.
Aside from the usual array of primary candidates from both Parties voters will be able to cast a ballot for or against Amendment One which will protect traditional marriage by banning same sex “marriage.”
Already plagued by a Gay sexual harassment scandal hanging over the head of the outgoing Democrat State Chairman, the decision of its Democrat governor not to run for reelection and the specter of a grossly underfunded Democrat National Convention held in an anti union Right To Work state it doesn’t seem that things could get worse for North Carolina’s Democrats. But, a resounding victory for the pro marriage Republicans could because it could take North Carolina off the board for Obama’s reelection campaign.
No matter how it is presented same sex “marriage” is essentially a religious matter. Those who are more religious are more likely to oppose these unions while the less religious are more sympathetic to them.
A recent Gallup poll found that the most religious states in America are South and North Carolina. Moreover a Pew survey found, that by a 54/35 margin Republicans are viewed as the friendlier toward religion between the two Parties. The view of the two Parties has been steady for more of the past ten years.
Although there are no hard data to support asserting it, Democrats are probably associated with the effort to defeat Amendment One. The head of the State’s NAACP The Rev. William J. Barber III, a leading Democrat, has characterized Amendment One as being supported by “ultraconservative forces….seeking to place hate and discrimination and division into the very heart of our Constitution.”
A Public Policy Polling (an admitted liberal Democrat firm) survey sees a landslide victory for Amendment One’s supporters. PPP’s final poll found the Amendment was ahead 55/39 with 6% undecided or not interested.
If Amendment One carries with a large percentage and a large Republican turnout in spite of the dampening effect the end of the Republican Presidential Primary process may have, it could be devastating blow to the Democrats.
