Maryland Voters Split On Same-Sex Marriage

A new poll from Gonzales Research & Marketing Strategies shows that Maryland voters are split on the issue of allowing same-sex marriages, with 48 percent supporting and 49 percent opposing the unions. White voters showed slightly more support than African-American voters. Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) has taken up the fight to pass marriage equality in the legislature next year, but opponents have vowed to try to repeal any such law at the ballot.
