BREAKING: Australia Votes YES In Marriage Survey

Moments ago the top officer in Australia’s federal statistics bureau revealed that the result of the non-binding postal survey on same-sex marriage is a landslide WIN for the YES side by 24 points.

Members of Parliament are expected to quickly introduce a marriage bill that could see legalization in place as soon as Christmas.

But…as always…the haters will try every dirty trick in the book to slow things down or dilute the win with so-called “religious liberty” discriminatory amendments.

TODAY, however, we CELEBRATE a great win for Australia and yet another advance in the global battle for LGBT equality.

    Edit: that link above is from the Australian government and came up at the top of the results as a paid Google ad when I did the search. Interesting.

    Edit 2: All states and territories recorded a majority Yes response.

  • NZArtist

    Y’know, given how much money was poured into the ‘No’ campaign, and how nasty it got, this is a fucking amazing result.

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      Indeed: “Never have so many spent so much to achieve so little.”

      • ColdCountry

        I would argue that the creeps behind the recent voter initiative for a casino in Maine did. They poured BILLIONS into their campaign, and got trounced 84% to 16%. Always great to see Big Money lose!

          • jruffdc

            What parties?

    • Cackalaquiano

      It leaves the politicians with no leg to stand on if they don’t pass marriage equality.

      • jruffdc

        Believe it when I see it. How much can you trust a Christianized pol to do what’s right?

    • Lizard

      I’m sure there’ll be a thread when conservative MPs inevitably throw tantrums and refuse to vote for the bill. Can you save the negativity for that?

      • jruffdc

        As if knowing that people like me in Aus had their civil rights put up to the majority should make me happy?

  • drbrentzenobia

    I believe Minnesota also approved it by referendum

    • Mark_in_MN

      No. A majority of Minnesota voters voted against an anti-marriage amendment the Republicans put before the voters, at the same time they gave the DFL majorities in both houses of the legislature. It was the legislature that passed marriage equality. And when the Senate passed the bill, a few days after the House had, that capital building just erupted in a great roar.

    • edrex

      as you have pointed out, no rights have been bestowed, just surveyed. i hope the rights are ultimately bestowed by the parliament as a constitutional protection.

      • (((GC)))

        Indeed… I hope the rights are recognized by the parliament, and quickly!

        • edrex

          yes! more accurate wording. thanks.

    BTW, does the US have a “Chief Statistician?”

    • djcoastermark

      I wouldn’t count on it.

      • Natty Enquirer

        Her name is Nancy Potok, ye of little faith.

        • edrex

          faith has nothing to do with it. confidence does.

      • edrex

        sure. but what are the odds?

        • djcoastermark

          I was going to say, Oddly enough there is, but I wouldn’t say something like that.

          • Natty Enquirer

            You’re just not that mean.

          • edrex

            probably.

    So turns out the guys with their Twitter analysis predicting a NO win will have to go back to the drawing board with their models. Can’t say I feel too sorry for them!

    • CB

      Models can be biased, too. If the creators are.

      • bobbleobble

        Oh absolutely, and from what I read they were setting out to prove the world is too PC. But they were so full of themselves because they claim to have got the 2016 election right and were so sure that NO would win.

  • ErikDC

    It was non-binding?! All that for a non-binding vote?!

    I guess I didn’t folllow closely enough, but I thought a win came with the force of law. If you’re going to attempt direct democracy, the results should be binding, imo.

    • Natty Enquirer

      It wasn’t even a vote. It was an opinion survey.

      • Tawreos

        That pretty much was the same as the polls since this whole thing began. The government could have saved a buttload of money and just made it legal then.

        • Natty Enquirer

          Yes, but how often does Mr. Statistics get a chance to hold the country hostage to his under-budget announcement?

          • Tawreos

            He was enjoying it too.

      • ErikDC

        What a collasol waste of money. Scientific opinion polls should have informed legislators it was supported by that wide a margin. That was way outside the MOE for any legit poll.

  • Halou

      Really? If those are the total counts, that’s less than 50% return.

      ETA: I made a rookie mistake and looked at total population instead of registered population. The turnout was 79.1%. My bad!

      • Cackalaquiano

        Are you thinking total population versus registered voter universe?

        • Lizard

          Probably. Sorry. Then if those are totals, that’s a 79.1%. Pretty damn good.

      • AlternativeQuacks

        Not everybody who lives in a country is eligible to vote. There are under-aged, non-citizen residents, etc.

        • Lizard

          Yeah, I see that. I’m recalibrating now. Shame on me, rookie mistake.

      • Sam_Handwich

        it was just under 80% participation

        • Lizard

          79.1%, by my calculations.

      • Edmund Allin

        Yep, nearly 80% for a voluntary poll. πŸ™‚

    • HanyBaal

      3 mil votes difference. damned illegals.

      • northern_neighbour

        Trump got 3 million votes LESS and grabbed the top job, ANYHOW … enabling renewed oppression of LGBT Americans … death by a thousand cuts in a hate race to the bottom of Fascism.

        Anyhow this a day for REJOICING!!!

        I’d gladly spend holiday money in NZ and AUSTRALIA. Its been a good year … FINLAND, MALTA, GERMANY and now AUSTRALIA by Christmas.

        Like to see Italy, Greece Ecuador, Chile, Taiwan and India or China or both within a couple of years. And many others.

    • (((GC)))
  • Great! Yet every couple comprised of a different sex, whether married, or engaged, or a simply wishing, or not, to marry someday, should even try to imagine the inhumane indignity of having your precious, legal, sanctimonious, or common-law civil right of marriage being subject to a popular vote by every neighbor, family member, stranger, and citizen in your country.

    • Cackalaquiano

      I dunno. Think about all your friends opening their ballot and thinking β€œwhat a silly question…of course everyone should be able to marry who they want!”

    You know, while I understand this is not a binding referendum or vote, is it really too much to ask that those of you either too jaded or just plain bitter to allow the Aussies this one moment of happiness without crapping on it? Seriously, we, as a people, are rarely been given reason to celebrate our struggles, so…do you mind terribly if for one brief moment, we can all feel a sense of joy before ripping it away? Thanks.

    YEAH AUSTRALIA! Just posted from the Syndey Morning Herald

    http://www.smh.com.au 10:14am
    There are scenes of jubilation across the country as people celebrate the result.

    Each state and territory returned clear votes in support of changing the Marriage Act.

    Long-time same-sex marriage campaigner Alex Greenwich says: “This day has delivered an unequivocal mandate to our federal government to get on and get this done.”

  • worstcultever

    Where are you going to move to now Margaret Court? Australia kicked your bigoted way of thinking to the curb. Maybe you can move to Iran, Saudi Arabia, Sudan? They don’t have marriage equality. Or maybe Russia. You’d fit in well there.

        A large crowd around the TV at the Airport, and a couple of “Yes!” comments, but people are pretty circumspect there.

  • scream4ever

    Some highlights of the results:

    -every state/territory voted Yes

    -only 17 of the 150 legislative districts voted No

    -those under 20 had the highest turnout of any age group under 45

    All in all wonderful news, now don’t delay in passing the final bill!!!

  • AlternativeQuacks

    Glad it passed everywhere, but I was surprised to see that the lowest yes percentage was in New South Wales. (The highest was in Canberra) I must have a lot of mistaken preconceptions about Australia. That’s where Sydney is; I would have thought that NSW would have the highest. Or is Sydney like a New Orleans in the middle of whole bunch of Louisiana?

    • Not quite. The culprit here was the western suburbs of Sydney. Redneck central, it appears. But then, the Westies are generally Labor voters — so perhaps it was a knee-jerk “no to anything the Prime Minister supports”.

      Never mind — we still won, and in the overwhelming majority of electorates, which bodes well for the Parliamentary vote.

      Except that Minnesota didn’t have a referendum that passed a marriage law itself, which is what Rex Wockner is actually referencing. Defeating the anti-marriage constitutional amendment is a bit different, but certainly very notable and lead to marriage equality passing in just a few months.

      • Mike_in_the_Tundra

        Yes, you are correct. I spent many hours at the phone bank. However, I see it as a yes from the voters. It was very similar to Australia’s vote. The people approved, and the legislature finished the job.

    If you haven’t seen the Australian movie, The Sum of Us, now would be an appropriate time to do so.

    I congratulate Australia in joining the rest of the progressive Western World. Through this fight, I kept yelling at the internet “You don’t have to invent this from scratch, Australia. Many other Western nations have already done this, and none of them have been destroyed in a bronze age god’s wrath. Do some damn research on the results everywhere else and stop acting like no one has ever done this before!” FINALLY the actual people of Australia had to act. Thank you all.

      I can only hope this puts even more a dent into their hateful Christian brand of politics to the point their donors stop. That will be the tipping point.

    Where’s that guy who predicted a “no” win based on Twitter? It looks like Australia isn’t a trollocracy after all!

      My earliest memories are watching “Percy Platypus and His Friends” on WGAL from Lancaster. The male platypus has a poison spur which seems to only produce poison during mating season; platypuses are SO gay. (Yes, I looked it up: the plural for platypus is platypuses)

        I thought it was Roy Moore.
