The latest Grand Canyon State Poll, done by the folks at NAU, is out, and it shows that the foes of gay marriage and domestic partnership rights are in good shape.
While a late August poll done by ASU—which emphasized the fact that governments would not be allowed to offer benefits to unmarried partners—showed Proposition 107 failing badly, the NAU poll shows it supported by 51 percent of those polled, and opposed by 42 percent.
That was the only thing resembling a surprise in the NAU poll. It showed what you'd expect pretty much everywhere else—Napolitano and Kyl have big leads; both smoking measures are likely to pass, and both are running close in terms of support; the minimum wage increase has broad support; etc.
But this bit of news about 107 is certainly a downer. Sigh.
