Kalley Yanta of the Minnesota Marriage Minute explains:
"...will President Obama's flip-flop on the issue impact how the country views gay marriage and impact the Marriage Amendment campaign in Minnesota? ... the evidence says no. President Obama has opposed every marriage amendment in recent years including Prop 8 in California and most recently the marriage amendment in North Carolina yet voters have passed them all. In fact surveys right before the vote in North Carolina this past may showed that a plurality of Democrats supported the marriage amendment, including two-to-one support among African Americans and majority of Independents and an overwhelming majority of Republicans."
