Weighing Both Sides Of The Marriage Amendment
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — In two days, Minnesota voters will decide on a constitutional ammendment to define marriage as between one man and one woman.
A new poll out late last night suggests public opinion has shifted against it.
Public Policy Polling found 45 percent of likely voters support defining marriage as between a man and a woman in the state constitution, while 52 percent say they don’t.
This is also one of the most expensive campaigns in the country. Minnesota for Marriage brought in more than $3.6 million. Minnesota United for All Families has raised more than $11.2 million in cash.
We heard from both sides of the issue on Sunday.
First is the Vote Yes side. Autumn Leva, spokesperson of Minnesota For Marriage, talks about their efforts as the election nears.
Now from the the Vote No side is Minnesota United for All Families, Press Secretary Kate Brickman. In the interest of full disclosure, Kate Brickman is the wife of WCCO-TV meteorologist Matt Brickman.
