Minnesota State Fair Poll Results: Should Marriage Be Defined As One Man and One Woman? SHOCKER Ahead!

Over 12,500 people participated in the 2011 House of Representatives State Fair Poll, a record number this year breaking all previous State Fair Polls.

The polls which are conducted Minnesota House of Representatives office of Public Information Services ask State Fair goers their current stance on questions that will be voted upon by the public in the upcoming November election.

 Amazingly 66.5 percent of those polled said  the state Minnesota State constitution should not be amended to define marriage as “only a union of one man and one woman,” while 29.8 percent believe the constitution should be changed.

The question will be asked on the November 2012 ballot.

Michele and Marcus Bachman must be crying into their Hers & Hers monogrammed lace hankies over this.

The poll was conducted by and published by the Minnesota House of Representatives office of Public Information Services.  And while it is certainly good news.  Lets not take this only at face value and think this means acceptance of marriage equality it may be nothing more than  a general reluctance to be amending the MN state constitution.

But lets hope its the former and not the latter.
