The recreational marijuana polls in Arizona, Nevada, Massachusetts, Maine, and California are being closely watched by investors ahead of the Nov. 8 election.
That's because on Election Day, voters in these five states will be voting on recreational marijuana legalization.
According to the polls in some states, there's already a wide margin of support for legalization. In others, the vote could come down to the wire.
These marijuana polls show how close each state is to legalizing recreational marijuana...
Arizona Marijuana Legalization Initiative, Proposition 205
According to an Arizona Republic/Morrison/Cronkite News poll conducted from Oct. 10 to Oct. 15, 50.4% of the 811 voters polled were in favor of recreational marijuana legalization in Arizona.
The same poll found that 41.6% of the voters were opposed to Prop 205, and 8% were still undecided.
The amount of support for Prop 205 was also similar in a poll by HighGround Public Affairs taken on Oct. 14. In that poll, 49.8% of poll participants were in support of Prop 205, 45.3% were against, and 4.9% were undecided.
But a Data Orbital poll conducted from Oct. 11 to Oct. 12 found that only 44% of those polled were in favor of recreational marijuana legalization, while 45% were opposed.
The amount of undecided voters could play a big part in determining whether or not Prop 205 passes in Arizona.
Nevada Marijuana Legalization, Question 2
The residents of Nevada seem in favor of recreational marijuana legalization, but only by a slim margin.
According to a Bendixen & Amandi International poll conducted between Oct. 20 and Oct. 23, 47% of 800 voters polled are in support of legalizing recreational marijuana. The poll found 43% of voters are against it, while 10% are undecided.
This most recent marijuana poll marked what could be an important shift, though, in favor of marijuana legalization in Nevada.
When the same company took a poll between Sept. 27 and Sept. 29, 47% of voters still favored marijuana legalization.
But 46% of those polled opposed the legislation, and 7% were undecided.

In a Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll conducted from Oct. 24 to Oct. 26, 48.8% of the 500 individuals polled supported marijuana legalization, while 42.4% were opposed, and 7.8% were undecided.
A WBUR/MassInc poll conducted from Oct.13 to Oct. 16, though, found that support for Question 4 was even higher.
According to the poll, 55% were in support of legalization, 40% were opposed, and 5% were still undecided.

Maine Marijuana Legalization Initiative, Question 1
According to polls from March and September, Question 1 seems very likely to pass in Maine.

Only 38% of voters are opposed, and 6% are undecided.
