True Blue Iowan: A generational issue
Excerpted from this post at True Blue Iowan
It's old(er) people who vote. Last year California voters struck down gay marriage... California! If it is put to a vote in Iowa there is no doubt gay marriage will lose. If Democrats do the right thing and keep it off the ballot they will surely lose seats in the next election. Perhaps they'll even lose their majorities in the statehouse. This will reinvigorate the far right Christians in the Republican party. It will become a rallying cry for organizing and financing Republican candidates. Make no mistake: This is a victory. Unfortunately, this is a victory could very well backfire.
