I don't think so. I think we win either way, just like we won when Prop 8's passage became a wake up call for many, myself included. If anything, losing would get more straight people who think they're allies to become real allies and straight people who aren't allies to understand that these are real people, not caricatures from Sunday service.
Prop 8 changed the game. It wasn't a pre-emptive strike against the recognition of rights, it was the removal of already recognized rights. I don't know of any other case of recognized rights being stripped, let alone one that was considered constitutional.
