POLL: Maine Marriage Equality Has 21-Point Lead

A new poll by Critical Insights finds that Maine’s marriage equality referendum is set to pass, with 57 percent approval and only 36 percent rejection. Support is particularly high among Democrats (81 percent), supporters of President Obama (86 percent), college graduates (69 percent), and 18-to-34-year-olds (77 percent). While hopes are high that Maine could be the first state to legalize the freedom to marry through a voter referendum, the fight will likely be close, as the 7 percent of undecided voters could easily sway the result.
