Lastest Field Poll; Voters Don’t Favor Prop 8

Today’s Field Poll results demonstrate a victory of sorts for the pro-equal rights and liberty crowd.  With Gay Marriages as the law of the land for about a month, thousands of Gay couples have tied the knot and the sky hasn’t fallen.  And I’m guessing Chuck DeVore’s traditional marriage is still intact and not damaged…
