Emerson Polling has a new marijuana legalization data conducted by Emerson College Professor Spencer Kimball on the latest Emerson College Polling Weekly Podcast
Marijuana legalization is seemingly taking the United States of America and Canada by storm. And new data via Emerson Polling further suggest a seemingly overwhelming majority for some form of marijuana legalization.
Over 70% of those polled in Texas, Wisconsin, Maryland, North Carolina and Ohio believe that medicinal marijuana should be legalized according to Emerson College professor Spencer Kimball, who appeared on the latest Emerson College Polling Weekly podcast.
There are however two issues that may prevent its seemingly imminent legalization in the near future despite the heavy support for marijuana.
“There’s a split amongst Republicans,” said Kimball. In Texas, for example,there’s a divide right down the middle of Republican voters who come in at 43-42 for marijuana legalization. That in turn would create a wedge in Republican primaries and even general elections.
“The other question comes down to the intensity issue.
“The intensity behind the issue: Will people come out and vote for marijuana legalization as they would for ballot initiatives on lower taxes and gun regulations,” Kimball pointed out.
