Maryland referendums: Parsing the polls
The Sun's newest poll shows Maryland voters strongly in favor of allowing same-sex marriage, strongly opposed to an expansion of gambling and split almost evenly on the Dream Act, which would grant illegal immigrants in-state tuition at colleges and universities. Another independent poll released days earlier, by Gonzales Research and Marketing Strategies, found a big lead for the Dream Act, strong support for marriage equality and a statistical tie on the question of gambling expansion. And the backers of the gambling expansion plan released their own survey on Saturday showing overwhelming support for the Dream Act and marriage equality and a 7-point lead for the casino question.
