The article incorrectly stated that the President stated his support for SSM only last May.

What is the correct date, then? I thought it was indeed May 9 in an interview with ABC News, as this CNN report states from that date.

Rather than quibble over the DATE he first publicly supported marriage equality, I'm more interested in whether his support NOW will make a difference in Washington, Maryland, Maine, & Minnesota.

I'd say his public support will have the most effect in Maryland where 20-25% of the electoral is black, and most resistant to the idea of marriage equality.

On a related subject-

Does anyone know when Washington state will release their election results?

Since they are a 100% mail-in ballot state, as long as the ballot is postmarked by 6 Nov it will be counted.

I know they can release the results of whatever ballots they've received by 6 Nov, but there's no way of knowing how many valid ballots have yet to be received.

It could be a week before we know for sure whether Ref 74 passes, or for that matter if Obama wins the state.

Well, no matter what The Obamaniac said and where you stand politically, at least we can ALL agree on the FACT that The Obamaniac is Evil. PURE EVIL.

At least we can all agree on that.

We can? Nope, can't agree. Besides only Republicans can be evil. It doesn't stick on anyone else.

Yes we can ALL agree on this and Obama is out to not only destroy the country from within but impose his Stalin type ideology on us all.

Anyone who dare disagree will be silenced.

I looked and the closest thing I could find to a deadline was that the ballots have to be processed as expeditiously as possible. We'll hear pretty much all they have gotten in by election day, on election day. It's just the votes postmarked on election day and stragglers mailed before that would remain to be counted, plus any disputed ballots. A margin of 5% or more on the election night count should be sufficient to withstand whatever is left to come in.

Wow, so Obama has a change of heart and supports gay marriage all of the sudden? In an election year, I'm shocked!

Gays should be insulted by this obvious attempt to use them and their cause.

Please do not be dumb enough to mistake election year pandering for real care and concern!:)

That's making a huge assumption. Half the ballots (or more) could still be in the mail on Nov 7th.

The SOS sent out about 3.85 million ballots. If voter "turnout" is anything like '08, about 2.5 million ballots will be returned. None of those ballots can be opened until after 8 pm on 6 Nov when the "polls officially close". So the counties won't even START counting the ballots until 8 pm. Every ballot signature must first be verified against the voter registration, but that part might be able to be done as they come in.

I'll be looking more at the raw vote count and from what counties rather than the "yes"-"no" percentages.

I think it will be at LEAST 3 or 4 days before we can say for sure which way it will go.

Hopefully the Presidency doesn't hinge on Washington or Oregon. How can you call a state one way or another if 50% of votes are still outstanding?

What a mess they've created. I think if they're gonna do mail in voting the ballot must be received by 8 pm on election day or it doesn't count.

It looks like the Kenyan Marxist is losing every swing state. I have to say that untill the first debate I was scared to death but after the world saw the clueless lib without his teleprompter , things changed for the best.

I know you did not vote for Romney which is your right and unlike dems I respect who you voted for, atleast you did not vote for Obama and hope other gays follow your example.
