It just so happens that homosexual activist groups around the country got a hold of the poll -- it was forwarded to them -- and they decided to have a little fun, and turn their organizations around the country (onto) the poll to try to cause it to represent something other than what we wanted it to. And so far, they succeeded with that.
So, when they were just sending this around to their own anti-gay mailing lists, that was all according to Hoyle. But when "homosexual activist groups" (or libertarian weblogs and thousands of other regular folks not on the AFA blast list) get in on the action, they've "done a number" on the poll. Obviously, any poll of this kind is meaningless. But if the leaders of the AFA had half a testicle (or ovum) between them, they'd follow through on their initial statement and forward the numbers whatever the result.
