Majority Now Supports Gay Marriage in Maine

A new Public Policy Polling survey in Maine finds voters are likely to reverse their 2009 decision and legalize gay marriage in the state this fall: 54% think that gay marriage should be legal to only 41% who think it should be illegal.

Using exact Maine ballot language proposed, 47% of voters say they'll vote to legalize gay marriage, while 32% are opposed.

Key findings: "Republicans' opinions are pretty much the same as they were in 2009. But Democrats' support for gay marriage has increased slightly, from 71% to 78%. And more importantly independents have gone from voting against gay marriage 52/46 three years ago to now supporting it by a 57/36 margin."
