Gay marriage is one step closer in Maine.
A poll revealed that that support for a referendum that would legalize same-sex marriage in the state has a 21-point lead, the Waterville (Maine) Morning Sentinel reports.
About 618 likely voters were randomly selected and interviewed by the poll, which was created by Maine Today Media and conducted by Critical Insights, between Sept. 12 and 16. Fifty-seven percent of voters said they support marriage equality, while 36 percent said they do not support Maine recognizing same-sex marriages. Seven percent said they were unsure.
