A new KSTP/Survey USA poll finds that Minnesotans are about evenly split on their opinion of gay marriage, KSTP reports.
According to the poll, 47 percent of those Minnesotans surveyed approve of the law, while 45 percent disapprove. Seven percent were undecided.
Larry Jacobs of the University of Minnesota Humphrey Institute told KSTP that the poll shows the issue "has not gone away," and "voters may have a verdict to make come November."
Among party lines, 65 percent of Democrats support the same sex marriage law, while 27 percent disapprove of it, the poll says. Republicans oppose the law 70 percent to 25 percent, while Independents are in favor of it 47 percent to 44 percent.
The poll has a error margin of plus/minus 4.3 percent.
The poll comes about a year after Gov. Mark Dayton signed the gay marriage bill into law.
Sen. Scott Dibble, DFL-Minneapolis, doesn't believe the gay marriage law will affect the vote come November, but Minnesota Family Council spokeswoman Autumn Leva tells KSTP that it will "absolutely be an issue politically for public officials."
