African-American Gay Marriage Movie

Hmm, Noah's Arc: Jumping the Broom will be opening in Los Angeles and Palm Springs October 24th, giving it two weekends to run before the Tuesday the state of California votes on the marriage amendment. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, eager Barck Obama supporters will defeat Prop 8:
Arnold Steinberg, a veteran Republican analyst, said the amendment's sponsors made a fatal strategic error in not qualifying the measure for the low turnout June election, instead of a presidential election swamped by eager Barack Obama supporters.

Why does he think Barack Obama supporters will vote against Prop 8? In terms of African-American Barack Obama supporters, will this movie help convince them to vote against Prop 8 or offend them so much they will vote for it? Here is the promo for the movie:

And the synopsis:
Noah, Alex, Ricky, Chance and their significant others travel to Martha's Vineyard for a weekend wedding getaway. Drama ensues as one-by-one their relationships start to crack under the pressure of closer examination. Newly successful screenwriter Noah looks to his friends for advice as he prepares to move his relationship to a more serious level while struggling to keep his first studio movie alive. But the friends are of little help as they juggle their own issues. Elder statesmen Chance and Eddie attempt to scratch their seven-year itch but worry their marriage has permanently lost its spark. And playboy Ricky flaunts his barely legal college student fling in the face of his monogamous friends but hides a surprising secret that threatens to rock the house. Add to the mix Alex's crazy-making wedding prep, a closeted superstar rapper, a high-maintenance studio exec, and a surprise visitor and you've got the makings of a hilarious and poignant romantic comedy.
