TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- A new poll says Florida voters are split on gay marriage, but they oppose legalizing marijuana.
A survey done by Quinnipiac University found that 45 percent oppose gay marriage, while 43 percent support it.  That's a change from last May when 50 percent opposed same-sex marriage.
Fifty-two percent are opposed to making marijuana legal while 42 percent say the drug should be made legal. The states of Washington and Colorado recently legalized small amounts.
On other issues: 73 percent of voters said they oppose an effort to let colleges like the University of Florida charge higher tuition rates. Sixty-six percent also said they opposed charging more tuition for certain majors.
Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,261 registered voters. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8 percent.
