    that showed way less than half the population supported gay marriage.  I'm guessing it's around a coin flip.  I hope the legislature chooses to be on the side of history and pass the bill.

      is that many, even conservatives, voted against the ballot measure because they didn't want to put this measure in the constitution. They were still against gay marriage but didn't want the religious right meddling with it.

        But I really don't think people care as much about writing something into the constitution in comparison to simply writing it into law.  The election truly can be dumbed down to an urban vs rural battle and we have more urban living people in Minnesota than rural folks.  Urban people like gay people, rural people just don't know them.

      They're as bad as Rasmussen if not worse.
