New poll shows support for marijuana legalization ahead of November vote
For the third time this year, a new poll shows a majority of Missourians are still in favor of marijuana legalization.
Contrary to a poll released last week from Missouri Scout and Remington, new data from SurveyUSA released on Monday shows high approval numbers for adult use marijuana in the state.
The poll, conducted by SurveyUSA for GRAY Television’s Missouri stations, shows voter support for marijuana legalization at 62%.
In fact, all three polls completed by SurveyUSA this year have returned similar results. Each poll shows variances, but the key number in each has been 62%.
Important in this iteration of the poll is the exact wording if the question.
In this poll, 62% of respondents said they were “Certain to vote ‘Yes” on Amendment 3.
Only 22% of those surveyed said that they were “Certain to vote ‘No.”
