During the campaign, Diane Linn's supporters often argued that her re-election race was a referendum on gay marriage -- and that lefty voters who support gay marriage should support her campaign.
Here's the Multnomah County election results from 2004 and 2006:
Measure 36 Amends Constitution: Marriage YES . . . . . . 144,151 40.26 NO. . . . . . . 213,923 59.74
Chair of the Board of County Commissioners Terrence R. Smyth. . 8,015 6.83 Ted Wheeler. . . . 81,740 69.64 Diane Linn . . . . 27,145 23.13 WRITE-IN. . . . . 474 .40
So, 186,778 voters voted No on 36 (pro-gay-marriage) and yet failed to vote for Diane Linn. Even adjusting for turnout and undervote, some 36.6% voted No on 36 and then for Ted Wheeler.
