I confess to some mild confusion. Karl-T at BOR has written:
Remember, in Texas, if we had Presidential level turnout, we'd be as much up shit creek with this Amendment as even Oregon was with their $2.4 million in aid from the NGLTF. It's not that we want low turnout either, we need the correct turnout. By making this big splash in the press about us running ads in Houston, not only are Houstonians aware of what's going on from the ads, but so is the rest of the state and those on the right that are paying attention to what we are up to. It's hard to ignore a fifth of a million dollars suddenly playing with Prop 2 turnout.This paragraph makes it seem that Karl-T doesn't think that Prop 2 can be defeated if Texans are paying attention.
I think he's probably right (vividly blue state Oregon approved a similar amendment), which makes me wonder why the entire content these days of Burnt Orange Report is mostly devoted to efforts to defeat Prop 2. I understand that they feel strongly about it, and perhaps there is a small chance that if they defeat Prop 2 once, then they won't have to deal with it again. But it seems that if they successfully defeat Prop 2 now, then Republicans will find a way to put Prop 2 on a regular election ballot.
Putting Prop 2 on a regular election ballot sounds to me like something Democrats would not like.
