POLL: Minnesota Amendment Still A Tight Race With Proponents Leading


Unlike a poll last week showing Minnesota’s marriage inequality amendment could lose by a full majority, a new Star Tribune poll shows a much tighter race. According to the numbers released Sunday, 48 percent support the amendment and 47 oppose it, with just 5 percent of voters undecided. This slight lead does not guarantee a victory for proponents, however, who require a full 50 percent majority — not just a plurality — to pass the discriminatory measure into law. Democrats and Republicans remain traditionally divided, with the Independents mirroring the full sample at 48-47-5.
