AFA retracts Marriage Poll; Still Ass-Weasels  
The American Family Association started a poll for their largely conservative (and exclusive) audience about whether America supported gay marriage. The AFA had initially started the poll to collect data they would send to the Senate. If you're a good blogging citizen, you probably remember coming across it and casting your vote. You may not have kept up with how there are currently two votes in favor of gay marriage (or a civil union) for every vote opposed.

It turns out that the AFA were really just kidding about the whole thing, and won't be submitting the "biased results" after their opponents have "decided to have a little fun".

I don't know whether this is common knowledge or not, and I don't remember where I first saw the link, but it makes me more than a little pissed.

yeah, it pissed me off too. As soon as the poll numbers started turning against them, though, I figured that they would go back on their word. there's no way that they'd ever admit that they were wrong, and that more people support gay marriage than oppose it. the whole poll was just so that they could prove themselves right and push thier bigoted agenda.

I never saw that poll

If i had known about it, it would have been printed off and hung around all over my job with angry commentary to go with it.

Have you spoken of this with Eli?
