On Monday, Keith Olbermann spoke with Candace Gingrich, sister of gay-marriage opponent Newt Gingrich, about new developments in the fight against Proposition 8. A new poll shows that 8 percent of those who voted for the initiative have changed their minds. And since Prop 8 only won by about 5 percent, the shift indicates that another vote would defeat the measure. “It exemplifies the progress that’s being made on people understanding what marriage equality is all about,” Gingrich said. “People understand now…what Prop 8 did…It took rights away from people…This idea that you can put the rights of one particular group up to a popular vote. I mean that’s scary.”
