A surprise appearance by San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom in an anti-gay marriage ad is being credited for increased support for the measure.

A new CBS poll by its San Francisco affiliate shows Proposition 8 the ballot initiative that would outlaw gay marriage in the state once again winning. Eleven days ago, the same poll indicated the opposite.

According to the poll, voters now favor the gay marriage ban by a five-point margin, 42-to-47 percent.

The sudden change of heart is being credited to a Yes-on-8 television advertisement featuring an unfortunate sound bite from Newsom, which began airing last Monday.

The Yes-on-8 (Proposition 8) commercial begins with Newsom at a May 15th rally at City Hall, where he is seen celebrating the state Supreme Court's decision legalizing gay marriage.

This door's wide open now. It's going to happen whether you like it or not, Newsom declares to a cheering crowd.
