A recent study highlighted by opponents of legalizing same-sex marriage in Minnesota shows 43 percent of the state supports the measure.
Minnesota's support is lower than most of its border states: 45 percent support gay marriage in Iowa and South Dakota, 47 percent in Wisconsin. North Dakota is just a bit lower than Minnesota with 40 percent in support.
Only 12 states and the District of Columbia had support for same-sex marriage at or above 50%.
"This is another concrete example that Minnesotans don't support gay marriage," Minnesota for Marriage spokeswoman Autumn Leva said in a news release.
Minnesota for Marriage will travel around the state this weekend and next to rally rural Minnesotans against the proposal, MinnPost reports.
Nine states currently allow gay marriage.
