What if the Conservatives Lose on Proposition 8?

Poll: California voters oppose gay marriage ban - San Jose Mercury News Proposition 8 would reinstate California's ban on gay marriage. But it is losing 51 to 42 percent. Virtually the same result as a May poll.

So, what happens to the conservative argument about activist courts, if the people actually approve gay marriage? Do you think the conservatives will concede gracefully, and drop the issue? No, neither do I. I expect that they will throw out all the arguments about federalism and states rights - so popular on some issues - and redouble efforts at the national level.
