A new Survey USA poll shows that a 51 percent majority of Minnesota voters now support changing state law to recognize marriage equality. The division was narrow, however, with 47 percent saying they oppose the proposed legislation now pending in both chambers of the legislature. Just this week, the National Organization for Marriage was boasting that the polls opposed marriage equality, but the newest results suggest otherwise. Consistent with other polls on the issue, support was higher among women, young people (including 58 percent of 18-49-year-olds), and those who identify as Democrats or independents.
