11 for 11 on Marriage Amendments

Constitutional marriage amendments passed in all 11 states where they were on the ballot on Tuesday. Generally, the amendments define marriage as between a man and a woman, effectively banning gay marriage. The initiatives passed by wide margins in all states:

Arkansas 75-25
Georgia 77-23
Kentucky 75-25
No Dakota 73-27
Ohio 62-38
Oklahoma 76-24
Oregon 57-43
Utah 66-34
Mississippi 86-14
Montana 66-34
Michigan 59-41

A couple solid wins...a few 2-1 margins...and 6 states passed by 3-1 margins. I am happy.
