A note on the Missouri vote

This is worth noting regarding Missouri’s overwhelming (71%) vote banning gay marriage. The Post-Dispatch states: "The wide margin may be especially noteworthy given that the Democrats outnumbered the Republicans at the polls Tuesday, as a result of the hotly contested Democratic gubernatorial primary." If this is true, then the opposition to legalization is even deeper than most have thought. Bush won Missouri by just over 3 percent in 2000.

Peter - Missouri has an open primary. Many consevatives like myself took a Dem ballot in order to vote for Gov. Holden, who was seen as the weaker candidate against GOP gov candidate Sec State Matt Blunt in November. So I don’t buy what the Post says - I rarely do - because casting a Dem ballot in Missouri doesn’t necessarily mean you’re a Dem.
