Carolina Journal’s David Bass has an interesting piece about the political implications of the May 2012 constitutional amendment that would define marriage as between one man and one woman.
Political analysts say that a marriage-amendment referendum scheduled for the primary election next year will have consequences for both parties, even though lawmakers in the General Assembly tailored the ballot question’s timing to minimize the political impact.
The scheduling of the referendum increases the likelihood that it will pass because Republican primaries for top state and federal offices might still be in play, said Peace College political science professor David McLennan. In contrast, Democrats probably won’t have key races to drive turnout, he added.
