Left-Leaning PPP Poll: Maine SSM Still Failing to Achieve Majority Support

 

Left-leaning Public Policy Polling is trying to claim (like many pollsters did in 2009) that the people of Maine will legalize same-sex marriage if asked to vote on it again.

Notably, however, the amendment still fails to reach 50%.

In fact, support for the same-sex marriage ballot is the same now as it was in 2009 when the measure failed (47%):

It looks like Maine voters will reverse their 2009 decision and legalize gay marriage in the state this fall. 54% think that gay marriage should be legal to only 41% who think it should be illegal. And when we asked about the issue using the exact language voters will see on the ballot this fall, they say they're inclined to support the referendum by a 47-32 margin.
