NOM Hires Mormon Pollsters Lawrence Research For Maryland Gay Marriage Poll

February 21, 2011

Mormon/Catholic sponsored NOM

NOM recently hired Mormon Gary Lawrence and his Lawrence Research Group (used for Proposition 8 in California) to conduct another bigoted poll.  Only this time it’s in Maryland.  Once again it shows not only the close ties NOM has to the LDS Church, and how the LDS Church who paid Lawrence 172k during Prop 8 will stop at nothing to sway public opinion, even when it’s using biased data to further their cause. 

By the way, if you’ve forgotten NOM has been put on the Hate Watch List by the SPLC for their anti-gay pseudo-science and fact twisting.  This is nothing more than a reinforcement why they should be considered a hate group.

The National Organization for Marriage recently commissioned Lawrence Research to conduct a survey of opinions on gay marriage in Maryland.

NOM’s poll released Thursday found that 54 percent of self-identified registered voters oppose lawmakers’ plans to legalize the institution, and only 37 percent approve.


In 2008, Lawrence Research was heavily involved in the effort to get California’s gay marriage ban, Proposition 8, passed. According to records from the California Secretary of State, the Orange County-based firm received payments in excess of $528,800 from ProtectMarriage.com between July 30 and December 17, 2008 for polling and research. Moreover, company founder Gary Lawrence served as the grassroots director for the Yes on 8 campaign organized by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Mormons. The church’s members played a large financial and organizational role in getting Proposition 8 approved.
