A poll of voters in Washington State reveals half of those surveyed are in favor of two controversial ballot initiatives—one supporting same-sex marriage and the other the legalization of marijuana.
A new statewide Elway Poll sees voters giving the thumbs up to Initiative 502, which would legalize and regulate the sale of pot to adults, by a 50%-38% margin (with 12% undecided). In July, the same survey showed approval was only leading 46%-44%.
Maybe they were too baked to understand the question the first time around?
Referendum 74, approving same-sex marriage, is even further ahead—leading 52%-40% among those polled, with just 8% undecided. That’s a bump from 49-39 in favor in July). Earlier this year, Gov. Chris Gregoire signed marriage-equality legislation passed by the State Legislature.
