There is no silver lining in any of these numbers. Every single demographic group identified in SUSA's cross tabs says they will vote for both of these amendments. That means self described Democrats and liberals. If we are going to have any chance whatsoever to defeat these amendments we must start with getting our ideological brethren on our side.
The Marriage Protection Amendment, despite the incessant negative attacks in the mainstream media, polls well with 47% for and 39% against.
With whatever amendments are on the November ballot, it will make for a very interesting election year.
