There's Hope! Gay marriage ban trailing in Arizona

OK, I take back my earlier, gloomy post. It looks like Arizona has a slim change of becoming the first state to defeat a gay marriage ban.

The Arizona Republic reports:
With 69 percent of the polls reporting, 48. 3 percent have voted for while 51.7 percent are voting against the proposition.

The measure would define marriage as a union between one man and one woman and bar state and local governments from giving legal status to unmarried couples.

If Arizon pulls this off, the defeat of the ban would be huge. It would be the first time, a proposed ban has been defeated. So far, though, the margin is thin. Stay tuned.

Hotline called it, it lost! This is one of the most encouraging results of this election. With the abortion ban losing in South Dakota, this is a major repudiation of social conservatism.
