Voters to decide key referendum banning same-sex marriage

A referendum in North Carolina that would constitutionally ban same-sex marriage - even though the state currently does not permit such unions - is in the spotlight Tuesday, as three states hold primaries.

Amendment One would alter North Carolina's constitution to say that "marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this state."


We'll have complete election returns on Erin Burnett OutFront starting at 7 p.m. ET.

    Totally agree with Richard on this one... I had come to expect professionalism and unbiased reporting from you... I turned your program off in disgust tonight... Obamas View: presented. Erin's post aside editorial: "Finally." Mitts statement: presented. Erin's post aside: Pregnant pause... eye roll of sarcasm. Repeat 3X. I guess I have to only watch Anderson Cooper to get an unbiased view. Seriously, I guess some professionals can see past their personal bias.

    Erin-Please forgive me for posting again but I've been deluged with ads and comments since yesterday and this isn't even an important issue to me other than civil rights. My point today that I forget to mention is re: your scoffing at the staffer's description of Romney's position but the fact is the Gov. HAS devolved or regressed on this issue.
    Thanks for hearing me out,

    Erin, I was about to applaud you for a fairly honest look at the issues tonight when you called the Obama staffer's comments "annoying." (Re:Romney's Gay marriage position.)
    You then called out Obama for attacking Romney on a weak position when Obama has one himself. Fine. But when have you jumped on Romney for spinning dems talking points aimed at him back at the President without justification? You don't even challenge his ridiculous assertions. Both sides do this but you only seem to call one of them out for it. Speak of annoying. Thanks, Rich

    I was about to applaud Erin Burnett for a more honest look at issues tonight when she called an Obama staffer's comment, re:Romney's Gay marriage position, "annoyable." She went on to call Obama out for attacking Romney on a weak position when he has one himself. Fine. But when has she jumped on Romney for spinning democratic talking points aimed at him back at the White House? She doesn't even challenge the ridiculous ones. Both sides do this but she only calls the President on it. Talk about annoying. Thanks , Rich
