I came across this fascinating debate on the website FiveThirtyEight.com. The site breaks election results and exit poll information down for analysis. The following link takes you to a discussion on Prop 8 from a variety of angles, but specifically meant to discuss the theory that black and Hispanic voters provided the tipping point for the passage of Prop 8. It’s an interesting mix of thoughts and statistics which leads to discussion of other major factors in the voting statistics, including age and religion.
The debate also delves into the various legal avenues which may be used to overturn Prop 8 and the constitutional principal behind both sides of the argument. Reading through the comments, it seems that the battle ahead of us may be a lot more complicated than we think. FiveThirtyEight – CA Prop 8
