By now, you probably have heard about the latest poll from OpinionWorks done for The Baltimore Sun that gave us new numbers on the three top ballot questions this November . This is on the heels of the recent poll done by Gonzales Research that came out in the middle of last week. When compared side-by-side, OpinionWorks seems to show a much more skeptical electorate than Gonzales Research when it comes to support for the three top ballot questions. On the Dream Act, while Gonzales Research shows the measure would pass overwhelmingly, OpinonWorks shows the outcome of the ballot question within the margin of error.
|Question 4 – Dream Act|
On the expanded gambling issue, while Gonzales Research showed the issue within the margin of error of their poll, OpinionWorks shows the electorate strongly opposed to the question.
|Question 7 – Expanded Gambling|
The only ballot question where the two polling organizations seem to agree is the question on Same-Sex Marriage, where both organizations show a double-digit lead in favor of the ballot questions, but even there OpinionWorks shows a slightly lower support for the ballot question.
|Question 6 – Same-Sex Marriage|
