On The Posner Show, Sarah and E.J. discuss the marriage equality referenda in Maryland, Maine, and Washington. E.J. explains why polling isn’t a good predictor of how people vote on this issue. Sarah asks what’s changed in Maine, and E.J. explains how voters are swayed by personal stories. Sarah discusses religious outreach in Maryland, as well as the role of the Baltimore Ravens. Why do marriage equality proponents need so much more money for their campaigns than opponents do? E.J. explains how leading private employers in Washington state have provided financial support for marriage equality there. Finally, E.J. recounts the revolutionary changes for LGBT equality in her lifetime.
