Nearly 7 in 10 Americans (69 – 25 percent) think the use of marijuana should be made legal in the United States. The numbers among registered voters are similar (70 – 24 percent), and they mark a record level of support for marijuana legalization since Quinnipiac University began polling on this issue in December of 2012. At that time, 51 percent of registered voters supported it and 44 percent opposed it.
1,237 U.S. adults nationwide were surveyed from April 8th – 12th with a margin of error of +/- 2.8 percentage points.
The Quinnipiac University Poll, directed by Doug Schwartz, Ph.D. since 1994, conducts independent, non-partisan national and state polls on politics and issues. Surveys adhere to industry best practices and are based on random samples of adults using random digit dialing with live interviewers calling landlines and cell phones.
