A new poll commissioned by Marylanders for Marriage Equality shows 52 percent of respondents would "probably" or "definitely" vote for the same-sex marriage bill if it is on the ballot in November. The survey showed that 44 percent would "probably" or "definitely" vote the measure down.
"Momentum is on the side of making Maryland families stronger," said Kevin Nix, a spokesman for the group.
The poll of 600 Marylanders was conducted by Public Policy Polling, and was in the field from Monday through Wednesday.
The 52-44 split is by far the rosiest result for supporters to date. Recent polls by Gonzales and The Washington Post have put the issue much closer to 50-50.
