-Gay marriage has been legal for three weeks in Maine now, and for most voters in the state it's not proving to be a big deal. 78% say it's either had no impact or a positive impact on their life, while just 22% claim its becoming legal has had a negative effect on them. Even among Republican voters, who largely opposed it at the ballot box in November, 60% grant that it's not actually having any negative impact on them. Voters continue to think gay marriage should be legal by a 53/43 margin, numbers pretty similar to the election results.
-Maine voters support an assault weapons ban by a 55/38 margin. Almost 80% of Democrats support it and it also has majority support from independents, and 26% favor from Republicans. Maine voters do not like the NRA- 42% view it favorably to 47% with an unfavorable opinion- and voters trust President Obama over the NRA on the issue of guns by a 49/43 margin. GOP voters in Maine are generally unhappy with Obama's gun push though, and they support impeaching him by a 50/30 margin. Those numbers might help explain why Susan Collins could be vulnerable to a primary challenger next year.
-With the Big East desperate for football schools we asked Mainers if they would support a move up to Division 1 and the Big East, but only 21% of voters support it with 15% opposed and 64% unsure. NO ONE wants to be in the Big East these days.
-Barack Obama's approval rating in the state is 54/42, pretty consistent with how he did at the polls in November.
-Lance Armstrong's favorability in the state is 9/66.
