Joe.My.God. tips us to the results of a poll taken at the Minnesota State Fair by the state House of Representatives about current issues facing voters. One of the questions asked about the state's proposed constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. The results may shock you.
Yes, that's right. 66.5% of attendees oppose the marriage amendment and only 29.8% support it. State fairs are also not known as the bastion of the well educated and liberal voters either...
North Carolina voters are also sending a clear message that they'd prefer their legislators get about things like fixing the economy and restoring the state's infrastructure. New polling out of the state by a non-partisan service shows that 56% of residents oppose the state's proposed constitutional amendment.
While Indiana passed a marriage amendment this year, a first step toward sending the proposed constitutional amendment to the voters, polling in the Hoosier state also shows that more citizens oppose the amendment than support it. A vote on the proposed North Carolina amendment is expected next week.
