A new KSTP/SurveyUSA poll shows the battle between supporters and opponents of a ballot measure that would ban gay marriage could result in the closest statewide race on Election Day, KSTP reports.
The survey shows 48 percent support the amendment that would define marriage as between a man and woman, and 47 percent oppose it.
The fight over gay marriage has resulted in a hot debate across the state and drawn nationwide attention. It's also generated a lot of fundraising – campaigns on both sides have raised more than a total $15 million. Even Brad Pitt donated cash (he favors gay marriage.)
The poll also shows solid support for a state constitutional amendment that would require voters to bring a photo ID to the polls: 55 percent support it, with 40 percent opposed.
And the survey found majority support for President Barack Obama – the president has a 7-point edge in Minnesota.
