POLL: MN Anti-Gay Marriage Amendment May Fail

Heartening news out of Minnesota regarding their Proposition 8 copycat measure to amend the state constitution to ban marriage equality. A new poll from the St. Cloud Statewide Survey indicates that 51% of likely voters will vote against the ban while 44% will vote for it. Among registered voters the lead for the forces of equality is greater (49% No, 41% Yes) but the No side falls below the magical 50% number, which is worrisome.

There's also some reports that this polling outfit consistently under-samples Republicans and may overstate Democratic support.

Regardless, one common feature of all the ballot measure fights in 2012 is that the polls have been close, showing that support for and opposition to marriage equality are nearly equal, which demonstrates a massive improvement for the forces of LGBT equality.
