      PPP in March found Mainers support gay marriage 54-41 and support 47-32 "a law that would allow 'marriage licenses for same-sex couples that protects religious freedom by ensuring that no religion or clergy be required to perform such a marriage in violation of their religious beliefs.'" Take from that what you will. (FWIW this ballot initiative does have those exemptions, but that's not immediately obvious from the wording.)

      meanwhile a Critical Insights poll for the Portland Press Herald from earlier this month found Mainers in support 57-35.

      While support for gay marriage won't correspond 100% with support for the ballot initiative (oddly enough), it should correspond mostly. So now that the wording is finalized I'll be interested in seeing more polls from here on out. Either way, I think Maine is our best bet out of the four states voting in November. (Following by MD, then WA, then MN IMO)

      Voting in RI-01, went to college in IL-01.
