Has the Minnesota Marriage Amendment Pushed the State Towards Romney?


The latest Rasmussen poll shows Mitt Romney trailing Obama by only 5 points in Minnesota. We wonder if strong support for the Marriage Protection Amendment is motivating the conservative base there, as we have seen in other states that have voted to protect marriage during Presidential elections:

President Obama earns just over 50% of the vote in Minnesota.

A new telephone survey of Likely Minnesota Voters finds Barack Obama with 51% support to 46% for Mitt Romney.  One percent (1%) prefers some other candidate, while another one percent (1%) is undecided.  (To see survey question wording, click here.)
