POLLS: Equality Leads In Minnesota And Washington

As the campaigns for equality continue in the four states facing a marriage question, new polls in Minnesota and Washington suggest reason to be hopeful. According to a new Public Policy Polling poll, Minnesota’s proposed constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage is now losing for the first time, with 46 percent supporting it compared to 49 percent opposed. Independent voters have flipped entirely, opposing it 52/42 after supporting it 51/42 just a month ago. Meanwhile, Referendum 74 to affirm marriage equality in Washington is leading by a 55-40 percent margin, according to a new SurveyUSA poll.
