The Anti-Gay Vote, Revisited

A reader of the Daily Dish presents a convincing argument against the notion that the FMA brought Bush over the top:
Now how did he do in the states which had anti-marriage ballot initiatives? .. Only in two states (Utah and Oklahoma) did he gain a significantly higher vote share than he did nationwide.
I buy that. The problem (for Democrats) is far more complex (or simple, depending on how you look at it): Outside of the big cities, white male voters think Democrats are spineless pussies.
