More On Washington's R-74

For Referendum 74, the vote on whether or not to uphold Washington's new gay marriage law, Elway sees voter confusion messing up the results. Some 52 percent of respondents support same-sex marriage rights, but only 49 percent say they'll vote to "approve" R-74. Which suggests that a lot of gay rights supporters don't understand that voting to "approve" means voting to uphold the same-sex marriage rights passed by the legislature. People have worried about this for some time, and now here's clear proof: this confusion is going to be a problem at the polls if it's not overcome.
