.- Poll results released last Friday show voter support for Florida’s Amendment 2, which would reaffirm the definition of marriage as being between a man and a woman, is nearing the sixty percent support required for passage.

“We are gradually gaining steam and have moved from 55 percent to 57 percent. But we are still not at the 60 percent needed for a victory protect marriage in Florida on November 4,” wrote John Stemberger, state chairman of Yes2Marriage.org, in a press release.

According to Stemberger, opponents had engaged in “below the belt campaigning” by stealing yard signs, filing frivolous complaints, and making “outright false and fraudulent claims” in television advertising. He claimed the Yes on 2 campaign has suffered from “stunning and unprecedented” media bias and is being outspent by opponents by a three to one margin.

Stemberger said the vote will be “razor close” and appealed for thousands volunteers to help pass the amendment. The campaign asks that people help in making phone calls, erecting yard signs, delivering bulletin inserts to churches, making literature drops at fall festivals, and waving yard signs at precincts on Election Day.

The campaign chairman of Yes2Marriage.org also appealed for monetary donations.

“Help us win this battle to protect marriage for generations to come,” Stemberger wrote.
