The poll of Star Tribune Minnesota reveals that a majority of Minnesotans are opposed to marriage equality.
According to the newspaper, 53% of Minnesotans say the state statute banning same-sex unions should stand. Only 38 percent say legislators should overturn the law this year, while 9 percent are undecided.
That represents a percentage of 73% of opponents to same-sex marriage against 27% of supporters or undecided.
"There have been a number of polls on the issue. The trend in general is moving toward acceptance of marriage equality,” said House Speaker Paul Thissen. “There will certainly be more conversation on this. Our members are talking to their constituents, which is more important than any poll.”
This poll is released whereas the legislators consider the bill which could legalize marriage equality in the state.
