Turning Point Was Ad Focused On Schoolchildren Being Taught About Gay Marriage
An Alliance Defense Fund “AllianceAlert” released today acknowledged the use of schoolchildren as a wedge issue in the Prop 8 battle won them victory in November’s Prop 8 battle.
“In mid-September, a Field Poll showed Proposition 8 — the constitutional amendment prohibiting “gay marriage” — trailing 55-38 percent among likely voters. But two weeks later, Prop 8 supporters launched an ad arguing that schoolchildren would be taught about gay marriage, and the message stuck. On Election Night, Prop 8 won.”
