SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A new poll has the same bad news for supporters of Utah's school voucher law. Voters don't seem likely to pass it.

The poll released Friday was conducted by The Center for the Study of Elections and Democracy at Brigham Young University. It surveyed 417 voters earlier this month and 61 percent indicated they would vote against vouchers.

Two earlier polls found nearly the same results.

Voucher opponents say they like what the polls are finding, but they aren't going to rest until after the vote on Nov. 6.

Supporters of the voucher law say polls aren't necessarily a forecast of how the vote will go.

The Legislature passed the voucher law and Gov. Huntsman signed it, but opponents got enough support to challenge it on the ballot.
