In Minnesota: Marriage Amendment Supporters Lead Among Likely Voters

At a conference not long ago, I learned that, in Minnesota, only 2% of those polled were undecided.  That means everything hinges on voter turn out.

Now this comes from KSTP:

SurveyUSA/KSTP Poll: Marriage Amendment Supporters Lead Among Likely Voters

A new SurveyUSA/KSTP poll shows supporters of the marriage amendment lead among likely voters as the issue heads to the ballot in November.

According to the poll, 52 percent of Minnesotans favor defining marriage as between one man and one woman.

Thirty-seven percent are against it and 11 percent are either not voting on the issue or not sure. [That's not 2%, but it is low.  However: a non-vote counts as a no vote.]

Republicans favor the amendment by an overwhelming margin – 75 percent for the amendment to 12 percent against. Democrats oppose it by a smaller margin – 54 percent to 38 percent.

Watch our video above to see how independent voters side on the issue. [Go there to see that.]

    I worry about the fact that a non-vote on this issue counts as a “no.” I doubt that is well known, and it concerns me about voters who just don’t want to vote on it, preferring the status quo. But, I think a yes vote is more consistent with status quo than a “no” vote. I am also concerned with the apparent manipulation by Secretary of State Richie by changing the title of the amendment.

    EVERY, EVERY single time (EVEN in California, for goodness sakes) homosexual “marriage” is put to the general voters it is defeated. Comforting in the sense that there still is a majority of sanity in this country; disturbing in the sense, that the dictators (Gov. Cuomo comes first to mind) will do all they can to force this society-altering agenda.

    Next up Minnesotans and all Americans will be called on to vote if water should be defined as two hydrogen atoms covalently bonded to a single oxygen atom. What other natural laws can we repeal in our hubris?? Gravity? Lift = thrust minus drag?
