The race for marriage equality in Maryland is on and it’s going to be close. So close, in fact, that we could face a recount. Next Tuesday, Marylanders will be heading to the polls to vote for president. They will also be deciding Question 6, the Civil Marriage Protection Act, which provides civil marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples. Religious freedom is protected.
Some recent polls have Question 6 passing. Other polls have the race a dead heat. Ignore the polls. The only thing I will ever agree with our opponents on is this: When it comes to Question 6, the only poll that matters is the one taken on Election Day.
We know from past ballot initiatives on marriage that as the opposition engages in the final weeks and days of a campaign, they gain a lot of ground. Their advertising, no matter how full of gross misinformation and scare tactics, chips away at any lead we may have.
