Minnesotans Split On Marriage Inequality Amendment

Voters in Minnesota are divided about a proposed constitutional amendment to outlaw same-sex marriage, a new Public Policy Opinion survey finds. Forty-eight percent of voters say they support defining marriage as between one man and one woman, while 44 percent are opposed. “It’s very much a generational issue- voters under 65 oppose the amendment but seniors support it 58/32 and that’s making the difference right now. 23% of Democrats intend to vote for it, more than the 19% of Republicans who are opposed.” Seventy-one percent of respondents say they “support either gay marriage or civil unions.”
