NY Sen. Diaz Takes Credit For Poll Dip
NY state Sen. Ruben Diaz is claiming that his recent anti-gay evangelical rally is responsible for this month's 7-point dip in marriage equality polling.
"I would take credit for the demonstration that we had in front of the governor's office on May 17," the Bronx lawmaker told Fred Dicker this morning on Talk 1300 AM. "Before that demonstration, it was 53 percent in favor of gay marriage...last month it was more," Diaz Sr. continued. "What I'm telling you is the demonstration, the education that we have been giving to the community is already achieving some positive note and the percentage is coming down."Diaz continues to predict that the issue will never come to a Senate vote in this session, which ends in three weeks.
