Both Sides: The Vote On Gay Marriage Amendment

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A recent poll shows more people are favoring same sex marriage.

The Survey USA poll shows 47 percent of those surveyed say they favor same sex marriage. While 39 percent said they were against it. Four percent haven’t made up their minds.

The state legislature has placed on the ballot this November a proposed constitutional amendment that says: “Only a union of one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in Minnesota.”

On WCCO Sunday Morning, Esme Murphy interviewed officials on both sides of the matter.

Minnesota Sen. Scott Dibble is a leader in the fight to defeat the amendment. He said the proposal hurts several Minnesotans and should be defeated this November. Watch his interview below.
