Poll: For First Time Ever, More Republicans Support Legalization than Oppose it
For the first time a national poll has found that a plurality of Republicans support the legalization of cannabis for recreational use. The poll also found a strong majority of all Americans to be in support of the move.
According to the YouGov poll, 45% of Republicans favor legalizing cannabis, with 42% opposed; 13% remain undecided. Just eight months ago the numbers were drastically different, with just 36% of Republicans favoring legalization compared to 50% opposed.
Among all Americans, support is at 55%, with opposition at just 33%. Support was highest among Democrats, at 63%; support among Independents was equal to the overall average, 55%.
