    What do the prospects for Amendment 2 passing look like?

    I recall reading in the Miami Herald that it looks like Amendment 2 will pass, though the potential pro-Obama crowd upset (at least the youth portion of it) could help prevent it from passing.

    As for Michael Schiavo's support, I suspect that his ad will only preach to the choir rather than convince proponents of the amendment to review the extent to which it will "protect" marriage.

    It needs 60 percent to pass and I assume that it will pass. Florida is a red state and aside from the three southeastern counties (Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach), very religious and basically the deep south.

    My mother and stepfather live in Naples, which is Collier County. Sometimes, looking at the poll results, I wonder why the Democrat even bothers to run for office.

    Indeed, but I think his story is an excellent reminder of government interference in the lives of people (and not in a good way).
