POLL: 57 Percent Of Mainers Would Vote For Marriage Equality

A new poll from the Portland Press Herald finds that if the November election were tomorrow, 57 percent of Maine voters would approve the marriage equality ballot initiative while only 35 percent would oppose it. Support was highest among women (60 percent), college graduates (62 percent), Democrats and independents (77 percent and 63 percent, respectively), and 18-34 year olds (67 percent). Nationwide, polling for marriage equality has been increasing at a consistent pace, and all four states facing ballot questions show strong support for the freedom to marry.
