Last October, The Tech surveyed over 2100 MIT undergraduate and graduate students about their political views. We asked whether students supported California Proposition 19, a measure to legalize and regulate marijuana. A majority — 54 percent — said they supported the measure, compared to only 41 percent of Americans overall. And while 52 percent of Americans said they did not support the measure, only 26 percent of MIT students said the same. A fifth of MIT respondents said they were unsure or offered no response.
