Marriage Equality Polls Well in Oregon: 49 Percent Favor, 42 Oppose


A new poll reveals that 49% of Oregonians favor marriage equality and 42% oppose. 9% remain undecided.

Marriage equality will be on the ballot in November 2014.

Joan McCarter at DailyKos sees optimism in the polling question:

Saying yes to "changing the Oregon constitution" instead of a much more neutral question like "do you support or oppose same sex marriage" indicates that a 49 percent level of support is pretty solid. That's very encouraging, 18 months ahead of the election, and not out of line with polling from PPP last December that found 54 percent of voters think "same-sex marriage should be allowed in Oregon."
