Poll: Maine Voters May Approve Marriage Equality In November

From my home state of Maine:

A new poll suggests that Maine voters are likely to reverse their 2009 decision and legalize same-sex marriage when the issue is once again considered at the ballot box later this year.

According to Public Policy Polling (PPP), 54 percent of voters that same-sex marriage should be legal, while only 41 percent think it should be illegal.

But when PPP 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, indicating some confusion on the part of voters.

It would be great to see same-sex marriage a reality in my “hometown.” Let’s keep our eyes on this battle as we move into full election season.

    how can they reverse something established? I know this sounds a silly question, but I am intrigued how a set law from voting is overturned with a new vote.
