With new polls being conducted weekly, Washington appears to be the state that is most likely to become the first to legalize marijuana this November.
A poll released yesterday by Strategies 360 found a 54% to 38% lead for I-502, Washington’s marijuana legalization initiative. 7% of voters polled were undecided. A larger poll conducted last week by KCTS 9 found a 51% to 41% lead among all voters. Among likely voters, it led 47% to 40%.
The Strategies 360 poll found that 34% of those who polled in favor of legalization “strongly support” I-502 and 20% “somewhat support” it.
Washington has seen growing support in recent weeks, unlike Colorado, which was seen a weakening of support and a growth in opposition lately. They still have a chance, though. In Colorado, Amendment 64 still leads 48% to 43% in the polls.
The Strategies 360 poll spoke with 500 registered voters from October 17 through October 20. The KCTS 9 poll was conducted by polling 782 registered voters and 644 likely voters between October 1 and October 16.
