Poll: Minnesotans Split On Same-Sex Marriage

nullMINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A new poll shows Minnesotans are about evenly divided on same-sex marriage.
 
Just weeks after the unions were legalized in Minnesota, a poll by the Star Tribune finds 46 percent of those surveyed support the new law which says gay and lesbian couples have the right to marry beginning Aug. 1. Forty-four percent are opposed and 10 percent are undecided.
 
The poll shows more support for same-gender marriage compared to a similar poll in February when 38 percent favored it. Two years ago, Republicans in control of the Legislature proposed a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage. Voters defeated the measure.
 
The phone poll surveyed 800 Minnesota adults June 11-13 and has an error margin of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
