More than half of likely voters in California are opposed to a constitutional marriage ban on the November ballot, with fewer than four in 10 saying they will back the measure, a Field Poll has found. A change in the wording of the ballot question reportedly played a factor in building opposition to the ban among the 30% of likely voters who were not aware of it. The ballot question now includes the phrase "Eliminates the right of same-sex couples to marry," while the original used the terms "Limit on marriage."
