Poll finds voters unlikely to repeal a same-sex marriage law

It found 55 percent would vote to retain the law and 38 percent would vote to repeal.
Drilling deeper, the new findings released today show 54 percent of self-described Independents and 57 percent of self-described moderates support same sex marriage. It also found overwhelming backing (65 percent) from those age 18-40.
