Final Week Polls Indicate Washington State Likely to Pass Marijuana Legalization


In what is likely to be one of last polls coming out of Washington State prior to Election Day, Initiative 502 to regulate marijuana is still holding strong to the commanding lead it has developed over the past few months. Data released from King 5 and SurveyUSA has I-502 leading among likely Washington voters, 56% stated they would vote yes on the measure with only 37% planning to vote no. There are just 7% still undecided.

This continues a several month trend of Washington’s I-502 leading in the polling data. A poll released last week by Strategies 360 had the marijuana initiative’s support leading opposition 54% to 38%. King5/SurveyUSA’s previous two polls from October and September had I-502 ahead at 55% to 36% and 57% to 34% respectively.

With just a few days left until November 6th, it seems unlikely the opposition will be able to overcome such a significant gap, putting Washington State on track to be the first state to legalize adult use of marijuana. Though, that may depend on how quickly the votes can be counted. The latest polling out of Colorado had their legalization initiative, Amendment 64, leading 53% to 43%.

Don’t become complacent because victory appears in sight! Check out NORML’s Smoke the Vote Guide to learn all about marijuana in the 2012 election. You can also read our “7 Simple Ways YOU Can Help Legalize Marijuana” and find some quick and easy ways you can help us sprint across the finish line. One of the most important things you can do with the remaining days is call voters in Colorado in support of Amendment 64 by using SSDP/NORML‘s online phone bank or JustSayNow‘s online program.

We WILL legalize marijuana. Let’s start on November 6th.

UPDATED:
After publishing this story KCTS9 in Washington released another new Washington State poll. Adding credence to the King5 numbers, KCTS9 found that 55.8% of registered voters were supportive of I-502 with only 36.7% opposed. Those numbers held strong when looking at just likely voters as well, who support the marijuana regulation initiative by 55.4% to 37.6%.

  • I-502 is not legalization. Don’t be blind.

    I-502 is the greatest thing to happen to this state in decades. While some like Eric seem to be blinded by the medical marijuanas campaign against the initiative most see its nothing but a excuse for those who partake in medical marijuana to get as high as possible and still be able to drive. Well I’m sorry but even at this point those same people can be pulled over and jailed right now for only suspicion of being high. When it REALLY comes down to it your creating a whole new industry for the state with I-502 that will, in the long term, bring in hundreds of millions of much needed dollars and hundreds of jobs. I-502 IS legalization, period.

    It is about time to quit beating a dead horse. Trying to put a stop to MJ is like asking the sun to quit shining. It is not going to happen. I am all for legalization/regulation. I am voting YES!
