A year after Maine legalized gay marriage, 87 percent of Maine voters say it has had either a positive or no impact on their lives.

According to a Public Policy Polling survey of 964 registered Maine voters released on Wednesday, 72 percent of respondents said that the legalization of same-sex marriage in Maine has had no impact at all on their lives, 15 percent said it has had a positive impact, and 13 percent said it has had a negative impact.

A majority (54%) of respondents agreed that gay and lesbian couples should be allowed to marry, while 37 percent remain opposed.

Opposition has decreased significantly since passage of the marriage law at the polls last November, declining from 47 to 37 percent. Gay and lesbian couples began marrying on December 29, 2012.

“Even among voters opposed to gay marriage in the state, 70% acknowledge that it hasn't actually had any ill effect on their lives,” Tom Jensen wrote in reporting the results.
