A new SurveyUSA/5 EYEWITNESS News poll shows more Minnesotans in favor of a marriage amendment to the constitution than against it.
SurveyUSA interviewed 600 Minnesota adults by phone between Jan. 31 and Feb. 2, asking whether they intended to vote for, against or not at all for the proposed amendment, which would define marriage as between one man and one woman.
Of the 542 respondents registered to vote, 47 percent said they would vote for the amendment and 39 percent said they would vote against it. Ten percent of respondents said they would not vote and 4 percent said they were unsure.
As we've noted before, marriage amendments tend to outperform advancing polling on voting day.
