Marriage Equality Poll Shows 21+ Point Lead in Maine Ballot Fight

The  Critical Insights poll was conducted Sept. 12 through Sept. 16 with live  telephone interviews of 618 randomly selected likely voters statewide. Results  were statistically adjusted to reflect the Maine population regarding age,  gender, region of residence and political affiliation. The poll has a 4 percent  margin of error.

Its being reported that support is particularly high among Democrats (81 percent), supporters of  President Obama (86 percent), college graduates (69 percent), and  18-to-34-year-olds (77 percent).

If won,  Maine will be  first state to legalize the freedom to marry through a voter referendum but could also set a precedent that it is possible to win by ballot that many on the right may used against us in upcoming court cases statiung that since it is possibel to win by ballot that judical judgement is not needed.

Civil Rights are not to be voted on, up or down.  EVER!
