2008 The Jews!

They don’t control the world (else Prop 8 would never have passed), but, at least in Los Angeles, they know a threat to equal rights when they see one:
Los Angeles Jews voted overwhelmingly against a California constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriages, according to an exit poll.
On Proposition 8, Jewish Angelinos voted 78 percent against the ban while only 8 percent supported the ban, according to the survey of 1,200 voters in 50 precincts. The remainder declined to respond. The Jews’ vote against the ban was the highest proportion of any ethnic or religious group.
