A year after Maine legalized gay marriage, 87 percent of Maine voters say it has had either a positive or no impact on their lives. According to a Public Policy Polling survey of 964 registered Maine voters released on Wednesday, 72 percent of respondents said that the legalization of same-sex marriage in Maine has had no impact at all on their lives, 15 percent said it has had a positive impact, and 13 percent said it has had a negative impact. A majority (54%) of respondents agreed that gay and lesbian couples should be allowed to marry, while 37 percent remain opposed.
But what’s also amazing to me is that 33% of those people who say marriage equality has had actually no impact on them are still opposed to it. Why do they care? And what’s it going to take to convince them that allowing same-sex couples to marry will not hurt them in the least?
