Yea, quite a realistic goal that you have there NOM. I can potentially see the Senate moving into the anti-marriage equality column, but the Assembly not so much. Why? Because, the Assembly has overwhelmingly been pro-equality, and even if this was not the case, the majority of voters in pro-ssm Representatives districts will undoubtedly have more important things to worry about when the elections roll around.
Again, do we really see this happening?
What is rather amusing is that NOM actually thinks that an anti-marriage equality ballot measure would pass in the state of New York. Besides the obviously biased and skewed Alliance Defense Fund/ NOM poll released last week, most polls before and after the marriage equality law passed show strong support for the measure.
Brian Brown then agrees that reversing marriage equality in New York is a long shot...yet still "believes it can happen" if you give a generous donation to the organization. And that my friends, is the end goal of this "three phased strategy". Brian knows that repealing the marriage equality law in New York will not happen, he knows that this "strategy" will be ineffective, yet he also knows that the organization must save face. NOM suffered a brutal defeat in New York, and its only a matter of time before such defeats become more and more common.
