It’s a sad, but not surprising day in American when Voters in 9 states OK gay-marriage ban (AP).
The amendments â€” on the ballots in 11 states â€” won easy approval in Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Oklahoma, Ohio and Utah. Exit polls showed the ban winning by 4-1 in Mississippi, 3-to-1 in Georgia and 3-to-2 in Ohio.
The Ohio measure, considered the broadest of the 11 because it barred any legal status that “intends to approximate marriage,” gathered equal support from men and women, blacks and whites.
Still to come were results from North Dakota and Oregon.
