A year after gay marriage became legal in Maine most voters think it's no big deal. 72% say gay marriage has had no impact on their lives, with 15% saying it's had a positive impact on them and just 13% claiming it's had a negative effect on them. Even among voters opposed to gay marriage in the state 70% acknowledge that it hasn't actually had any ill effect on their lives.
Last year voters approved gay marriage by 6 points at the polls. Now voters say they support it by a 17 point margin, 54/37. It's 57/31 among independents, and voters under 30 favor it 65/26. For the most part voters' reaction is that it's just not a big deal.
