Brian Brown, to NPR, on MN: "We've Never Lost"


NOM President Brian Brown was asked by National Public Radio to comment on polling in Minnesota (more on that from us soon):

... supporters of the Minnesota amendment say the notion of that state as a bellwether for change in same-sex marriage attitudes is hogwash.

"People doing polls want to get the results they're getting," says Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage, a powerhouse behind efforts to prohibit gay marriage.

His organization commissioned a poll in Minnesota, where state law already defines marriage as between a man and a woman, that found that 57 percent of those surveyed opposed same-sex marriage.

NPR also gave him the last word:

"The only poll that counts is what happens in the ballot box, and we've never lost."
