    Ohio Poll finds state still the hyper-moral heart of it all 

    Election Day will be a test for Ohioans' generosity of spirit. If The Ohio Poll is right, we're going to fail it. The Ohio Poll, conducted by the Institute for Policy Research at the University of Cincinnati, finds that despite the opposition of the state's political and business leaders and some of its largest groups, such as AARP, that 57 percent intend to vote for Issue 1 and ban gay marriage, which already has been banned by the legislature. When the best and brightest of Ohio's Republican Party line up against an proposal that will hurt Ohio's already hurting economy, you'd think their fellow Ohioans would listen. Not on this issue. The moralists want double kill. Cincinnatian Phil Burress, who is leading Citizens for Community Values' effort to pass Issue 1, could be overreaching to compensate for an admitted former pornography addiction. They want the Defense of Marriage Act, which Gov. Bob Taft signed earlier this year, and Issue 1, which would prohibit any union (including heterosexual ones out of wedlock) and even namby-pampy Taft opposes. Ohioblog has reached the point of hoping these Ohioans get what they want and then have to take responsibility for the consequences.
