Odds look slim for Calif gay marriage vote in 2010

SAN FRANCISCO (AP)

The chances of California voters being asked to repeal the state's ban on same-sex marriages next year are looking more remote after another prominent political group
announced that more time is needed to build a winning campaign.

Rick Jacobs, founder of the Los Angeles-based Courage Campaign, said Monday that polling and other research his organization commissioned shows that gay marriage supporters do not have the financial backing, leadership or edge in public opinion to try to overturn Proposition 8 in 2010.

The announcement by Jacobs means that a coalition of small gay rights groups that is gathering signatures to qualify a gay marriage measure for the November ballot will be working without support from established organizations.
