With less than a week to go before voters in three states decide whether to legalize marijuana, a survey conducted last week puts support for Colorado's initiative, Amendment 64, at 53 percent, up from other recent polls. In the survey, conducted by Public Policy Polling on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, 43 percent of likely voters said they opposed Amendment 64, while about 5 percent were undecided.

It looks like undecided voters may be shifting to the yes column.
