Minnesotans decidedly opposed to homosexual marriages

With the state Supreme Court in neighboring Iowa rewriting that state's definition of marriage to include same-sex couples, Minnesotans are divided on the subject in this state, a Star Tribune Minnesota Poll finds:

• One-third say the state needs a constitutional amendment to prohibit same-sex marriage;

• Just over one-third say that there should be no change in current state law, which bans such unions, and that it should be left to the Minnesota Supreme Court to rule on the law's constitutionality;

• One-fourth believe same-sex marriage should be legalized. . . .

The Strib's headline says "More Minnesotans appear to be accepting of same-sex marriage." Assuredly, "more" Minnesotans are in favor of it now than there were in previous polls. But still 66%+ of those polled are opposed to homosexual marriages while only 25% are in favor of them.

Good catch. Once again, they probably were limited to polling their readers.
