Majority Oppose Discriminatory Anti-Marriage Initiative in California

The California Field Poll found a majority of Californians are against writing marriage discrimination into the California Constitution with Proposition 8. This latest poll performed in July 2008 reaffirmed similar findings from the Field Poll in May 2008.
