52 Percent Of Marylanders Would Uphold Same-Sex Marriage Law


Fifty-two percent of respondents to a Maryland poll said they would “probably” or “definitely” vote in favor of the state’s recently-enacted same-sex marriage law should it appear on the ballot in November, while 44 percent of the 600 respondents said they would “probably” or “definintely” vote against it. The poll was commissioned by Marylanders for Marriage Equality and conducted by Public Policy Polling. Polls recently released by Gonzales and The Washington Post have reported the split in votes closer to 50-50. Opponents of the law are currently trying to collect the 56,000 signatures needed to put the law on the November ballot. — Fatima Najiy
