Yes, Minnesota is known to be a little to the left of center, at least in their politics, so their marriage amendment will be something to watch. Passage would really be a punch in the gut to the fake marriage proponents.

But before then, watch North Carolina in May (or whenever they decide to have their primary.) Many pollsters showed that most people supported man/woman marriage only but did NOT want a marriage amendment. I think it will pass by at least the low 60’s, if not higher, in that state.

Indiana is scheduled to have their marriage amendment vote by as early as 2014, due to their requirement to be approved by two consecutive congresses.

“I think it will pass by at least the low 60’s, if not higher, in that state.”

I bet NC goes higher. Va’s(my state) only passed by 57% in 2006 if I recall, but I think that was only because of the strict nature of the Va amendment(maybe a little too strict in my opinion) plus northern Va. Now NC did go for pres O last election, but they don’t have Northern Va to deal with, so I guess it passes in the 65-75% range. SC passed theirs also in 2006 by 78%.

Most of the polls are worthless when it comes to this issue, either they are merely “internet polls” where young people who don’t vote are more represented or folks just lie to the polsters because they don’t want to come of as harry or sally homophobic.
