POLL: Oregon Voters Eager To Vote For Marriage Equality

A recent Public Policy Polling poll shows that Oregon voters are eager to embrace marriage equality, with 77 percent saying they should be able to vote. Should that vote occur, 54 percent would vote to legalize same-sex marriage while just 40 percent stand opposed. For voters under the age of 45, the spread widens to 68/30. Though voter referenda are not an ideal strategy, it’s the only option for marriage equality in Oregon, which was one of 13 states to pass a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage in 2004.
