A recent poll from Change Research of 2,323 likely November 2020 voters in seven swing New York State Senate Districts from June 6 – 9 shows:
- There is significant majority support for the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act within each district,
- Voters in each district are more likely to vote for elected officials who support the MRTA, and
- Women and independents are supportive of legalization generally and as a solution to budget deficits.
The senate districts are SD-5 (Gaughran), SD-6 (Thomas), SD-8 (Brooks), SD-35 (Stewart-Cousins), SD-37 (Mayer), SD-39 (Skoufis), and SD-40 (Harckham), and the poll’s targeting and weighting yielded a representative sample within each district. The poll asked respondents three core questions and the results are presented for each district.
