|New Hampshire: One place where Gary|
Johnson's "Live Free" slogan should
-Support for gay marriage in New Hampshire continues to be on the rise. 57% of voters think it should be legal to 35% who think it should be illegal. That represents a six point increase in support for gay marriage compared to last July when we found support at 51/38. Democrats (85% support) and Republicans (just 21% support) are pretty far apart on this issue but as we're finding more and more independents (61% support) are a lot closer to the Democrats than the Republicans on it. 85% of voters support some form of legal recognition for gay couples in the form of either marriage or civil unions, including 69% of Republicans.
-65% of voters support legalizing medical marijuana to 24% opposed. That includes more than 70% of Democrats and independents and even a plurality of GOP voters (46/43).Given that most people now believe that President Obama's abrupt conversion on marriage equality was a cynical political maneuver (as compared to Governor Johnson's long-held position), and that neither Obama nor Romney has anything planned for marijuana except continuing prosecution and persecution, this would appear to be fertile ground for Libertarians.
