A good Monmouth poll from mid-September had some hashish advocates spooked in regards to the possibilities for Proposition 207, the upcoming ballot initiative that seeks to legalize leisure marijuana in Arizona. The ballot discovered Arizonans favored the initiative by solely a slight margin: 51 p.c in favor and 41 opposed, however narrowing to a lifeless warmth in a low-turnout election. Too shut for consolation.
However two new polls out at this time counsel public opinion within the state is just not fairly as divided as final month’s Monmouth ballot recommended.
One of many new polls, also from Monmouth, reveals 56 p.c of Arizonans in favor and 36 p.c opposed, of the 500 registered voters polled. Help from Republicans notably ticked as much as 38 p.c, from 32 p.c final month.
As Marijuana Second notes, the opposite ballot, carried out by OH Predictive Insights, used the precise poll language in its questioning, versus a extra common description of the initiative. In that one, 55 p.c have been in favor, 37 p.c opposed, with a hefty 79 p.c of Democrats and 72 p.c of Independents in favor. (Solely 23 p.c of Republicans favored it.)
“It seems that the specificity of that language and descriptiveness of the initiative’s provisions compelled extra individuals to again it, which bodes properly for supporters main as much as Election Day,” Marijuana Second concluded.
