51 percent of Mainers Want Marriage Equality


A majority of likely Maine voters who responded to a poll released Thursday said they would keep marriage equality if they were to cast their ballot today.

The poll showed that 51.8% of people would vote no on Question 1, which asks whether to overturn the same-sex marriage bill passed by the Maine legislature and signed into law by Gov. John Baldacci in the spring. The law was to go into effect in September, but has been delayed pending results of the November 3 election.

While 42.9% of voters said they would vote yes, another 5.2% are undecided, according to the Pan Atlantic SMS Group, which conducted the poll.

The margin of error was 4.9%.
