In November of 2014, voters in Oregon will have the chance to vote for an amendment to the state constitution that repeals the ban on same-sex marriage and allows for full marriage equality. A new poll from DHM Research shows that 18 months ahead of that vote, a plurality — 49 percent — of Oregon voters support this change, while just 42 percent oppose it. Still, there are 9 percent who are unsure of the change, which means there are still many minds that could change. As John McCarter points out at the Daily Kos, there is reason to be optimistic that so many would actually commit to the amendment, a result that jibes with a Public Policy Polling poll from December that showed 54 percent supporting marriage equality over all.
