GAY marriage opponents have spent twice as much as the ‘Yes’ campaign on television advertising despite claiming they would be fighting a “David versus Goliath battle”.
The estimates come as reports emerged of ‘Vote No’ graffiti and swastikas being scrawled across public transport in New South Wales, and rocks being thrown at houses flying rainbow flags.
Leading ‘No’ campaigners the Coalition for Marriage are believed to have spent almost $1 million on television advertising to date.
The Equality Campaign meanwhile has spent $494,000 on television ads.
The analysis comes from marketing analytics firm, Ebiquity, as the campaign enters its eight week from Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s announcement of the government’s intention to hold a postal survey.

This survey doesn't affect me either way (as I'm neither gay nor married..).
I'm voting 'Yes' because I don't see why I should want to prevent anybody from
Some right wing/evangelist groups (such as 'Hillsong'..) have probably donated big time to the "No" campaigns war chest.
What gets to me is how many outrights lies the "No" campaigners have been peddling over recent weeks, then they have the hide to flood newspapers with faux outrage letters, claiming that the only "dirty" tactics to be seen are coming from the "Yes" camp..
I'm predicting the survey outcome will be close to 60% "Yes", and around 40% combined "No" votes, Donkey votes, and not-returned..
Then we will see the "No" campaigners claiming 'Rigged votes !'', 'We woz robbed !', 'Fake news !'...
It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
