A poll of likely Nevada voters shows most have made up their minds on a state ballot initiative that would define marriage as a union between one man and one woman. Only 4% of the 625 people responding to the statewide poll for the Las Vegas Review-Journal said they had not yet made up their minds on Question 2, which will appear on next week's ballot.
Sixty percent said they support Question 2, which would make the existing statutory definition of marriage--a union between one man and one woman--part of the Nevada constitution. Thirty-six percent said they were opposed. The telephone poll was conducted for the Review-Journal by Washington, D.C.-based Mason-Dixon Polling and Research Inc. The sampling error margin was four percentage points.
Richard Schlegel, executive director of Equal Rights Nevada, a group opposed to Question 2, promised radio and telephone campaigns this week in Las Vegas and Reno to urge voters to vote against the measure.
