Poll Numbers Looking Positive for Marriage in Maine
April 08 2012 4:22 PM ET
A recent poll shows a clear majority of Maine voters support allowing same-sex couples to marry in the state, more than two years after a marriage equality law was overturned at the ballot box.
In a survey of 993 registered voters conducted from March 31 to April 2, Maine People’s Resource Center asked, “Do you strongly favor, somewhat favor, somewhat oppose or strongly oppose allowing same sex couples to be legally married in Maine?”
Strongly favor: 43.7%
Somewhat favor: 14.5%
Somewhat oppose: 11.7%
Strongly oppose: 28.2%
Not sure: 2.0%
Voters will decide the issue yet again in November. In 2009, Question One, which proposed to overturn a marriage equality bill passed by the state legislature and signed into law by Gov. John Baldacci, passed with about 53% of voters supporting and 47% opposing.
