As you may know, there will be one question on the ballot this November in Maine addressing the issue of same-sex unions. In part, it will read "Do you want to reject the new law that lets same-sex couples marry?" A "YES" vote takes away the right of same-sex couples to marry. A "NO" vote keeps the right of same-sex couples to marry. If the election were held today, would you vote YES or NO on this question?
47% Yes, 48% No (chart)
Regardless of how you might vote, do you favor or oppose allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry legally?
49% Favor, 48% Oppose
