A new poll in South Dakota out today says that if the election were held today, South Dakotans would reject a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage in the state.
After several states handily passed similar amendments in 2004, it would seem that South Dakota could be emerging as a progressive oasis right in the middle of the country.
Well, probably not, but this poll is refreshing news. When conservative states like South Dakota balk at ballot measure that would have almost certainly passed just two years ago, you know the tide is changing. Of course, that is not to say you will see gay wedding bells anytime soon in South Dakota, only that the people of middle America are starting to see through and question the hate filled agenda being pushed by conservative Republican extremist.
* Congrats to those in South Dakota who are leading the fight against the ammendment, including Class of 2005 YP4 Fellow Jon Hoadley who is the campaign manager for South Dakotans Against Discrimination.
