Phil Burress of the Citizens for Community Values Action Political Action Committee in Ohio says that if there’s a ballot referendum in Ohio in 2016 to repeal the state’s ban on same sex marriage, that will be the demise of Hillary Clinton if she’s the Democratic nominee for president.
As reported recently by OneNewsNow, Quinnipiac University released a poll last month that showed in head-to-head matchups, Hillary Clinton – currently the odds-on favorite to be the Democratic nominee in two years – beat seven potential Republican challengers in Ohio by anywhere from 9 to 17 points. Even Ohio Governor John Kasich finished 12 points behind the former first lady and secretary of state.
But Phil Burress, chairman of Citizens for Community Values Action Political Action Committee, argues the polls haven’t figured in an important potential factor he believes could change the dynamics in Ohio.
“It is quite likely that same-sex marriage may be on the ballot in Ohio in 2016 – and that changes everything,” he contends. “… If indeed homosexual activists decide to put same-sex marriage on the ballot, it will bring out the conservatives and also the evangelicals in record numbers.”
It’s quite amusing to me how many of these bigots are living in the past. Yes, the ban on same-sex marriage passed easily in 2004, but that was a decade ago and public opinion has shifted dramatically on the issue since then. Indeed, a new poll shows that Ohio voters favor recognizing same-sex marriages now by a 51-44 margin. But keep on living in that fantasy world.
