President-Elect Donald Trump

I can’t honestly believe I even typed those words as the title for this post. I naturally tend to be one who distrusts the mainstream media and polls because I feel like they know the impact they can have on persuading elections and they take advantage of that. With that being said though, I still didn’t honestly think this would happen.

“Proposition 8 was a ballot measure in the state of California during the November 2008 elections. While voting for the President and other offices, Californians were asked if only a marriage between a man and a woman should be recognized by the state of California, to which surprisingly, 52% of the state voted Yes. Obviously, when someone gets an answer they don’t want, they appeal and try to have the courts overturn it which is what the Supreme Court is deliberating now.”
