That evening the big names leaned towards not going back to the ballot so soon, instead waiting for the results of the legal cases (before the 9th Circuit). They doubt the $60 million could be raised and that a loss would damage the legal case. Before they proceed they want polling to be in the high-50s, not just above 50%.
Wockner spelled out his disagreement.
* National polls now show a majority of Americans favor same-sex marriage.Since this meeting in San Diego, gay marriages have begun in New York and Maine announced they're going for a ballot proposal in 2012. So the conversation is still open and the chances in Calif. have gone up a bit.
* They've been working for 3 years and feel they have antidotes to the lies told last time around.
* The vote to ban gay marriage in Calif. is the one most in need of revenge.
* Overturning the ban through voter approval would be lots better than a court win (except if it was the big one in which the Supremes ruled for gay marriage in 50 states).
* That win would diminish the anti-gay crowd more than a court ruling would.
