New Poll: Tossup in Maine on Gay Marriage

by Maggie Gallagher

Even in a blue state gay marriage is having trouble, according to a Democratic pollster:

Maine voters are leaning towards legalizing gay marriage, but it looks like it will be probably be close. 52% of voters say that they plan to vote yes on Question 1 to 44% who are opposed. When we ask simply whether or not voters think same sex marriage should be legal, 52% say it should be while 40% think it should not. Our experience in polling these kinds of issues is that undecided usually means no so this really should be seen as a toss up with gay marriage supporters barely over the 50% mark — there’s not a lot of room for error in the final seven weeks.
