GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A new poll shows change from a year ago in the Michigan public’s opinion regarding same-sex marriage.

The EPIC-MRA poll released Wednesday showed 47% of people would vote for a hypothetical ballot proposal to allow same-sex marriage in Michigan. 46% of people polled said they would oppose it. That’s a statistical dead heat.

Seven percent were undecided or declined to answer the question.

In a poll asking the same question in May 2013, 55% of people asked said they would approve same-sex marriage and 41% said they would oppose it. 4% were undecided or declined to answer the question.

The most recent poll questioned 600 people by phone between May 17 and May 20. It has a plus or minus 4-point margin of error.
