MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Florida is one of multiple states that enacted a gay marriage ban; but according to a new poll, Florida voters are warming to the idea of allowing same-sex marriage in the state.

According to a new Public Policy Polling poll, which skews Democratic, Floridians are essentially split evenly on whether same-sex marriage should be illegal. Forty-five percent say same-sex marriage should be illegal, compared to 42 percent who disagree.

The three-point margin is inside the +/- 3.9 percent margin of error in the pole meaning the question is a statistical tie.

Last October when PPP last asked about Florida voters’ view of gay marriage, 48 percent believed it should be illegal, compared to 37 percent who said it should be legal.

Overall, PPP found in the latest poll that 72 percent of Florida voters believed same-sex couples should either be allowed to marry or form civil unions, which is up 3 percent from October.

PPP found that African-American views of same-sex marriage jumped 26 points to 49 percent approving gay marriage since last October.
