Majority of Minnesotans Support Obama’s Stance on Marriage
May 14, 2012 by Trevor Chandler, Associate Regional Field Director
The ripple effect of President Obama’s announcement that he supports marriage equality continues to show itself around the country, most recently here in Minnesota, where a new poll shows 52 percent of Minnesotans support the President’s position. It shows we have the momentum in defeating the anti-gay amendment that would ban marriage equality in the North Star State.
This new polling shows not only how powerful President Obama’s announcement has been, but also how receptive Minnesotans have been to the conversations we’re having throughout the state about why this amendment is not the Minnesota way. We’ve always believed that once everyday Minnesotans realized how negatively this would impact our freedoms in the state they would join us in voting no and it is clear they won’t let us down.
There is still a long way to go and a lot of work to do, but we are confident that working with Minnesotans United for All Families, which HRC is a coalition member of, we will defeat this amendment in November. You can help keep the momentum by donating here.
