New Poll Shows Ohioans Might Not Be Ready to Legalize Pot or Allow Gay Marriage

There might be support for legalizing marijuana and allowing gay marriage in some states but a new poll shows both issues might lose if Ohio voters weighed in right now. 

Just last week, a Quinnpiac University National poll showed support for legalizing marijuana by a margin of 51 to 44 percent.  But a new Quinnipiac University Poll of Ohioans shows the issue is tied here in the buckeye state at 47 percent. 

The poll shows men narrowly favor legalizing marijuana while women narrowly oppose it.  And when it comes to gay marriage, the same poll shows 45 percent favor allowing it while 47 percent don’t.  But on this issue, women are slightly more likely to favor allowing gay marriage while men are slightly more likely to reject it.
