In California, a majority of voters appear to support Proposition 8, the measure which would ban same-sex marriage in the state. But while current results show the measure leading 54 percent to 46 percent, 0 percent of precincts in San Francisco County 'êÂ basically, the city of San Francisco 'ê have been counted.
