A new poll shows that voters in Maine are evenly divided on the issue of gay marriage.
According to the Public Policy Polling survey, 48 percent of voters say they support the state's new law which allows same sex couples to marry and 48 percent said they will vote to overturn it.
Traditional marriage supporter Bob Emrich is encouraged by the numbers.
"The polls seem to be pretty consistent that that's about where the race is," he told the Baptist Press. "Maybe I'm being optimistic, but I think we're probably a little bit further ahead than that. But considering the fact that the other side has been able to raise and outspend us by such huge margins ... I feel that was reasonably good news."
Election Day is scheduled to take place in on Nov. 3.
