Very interesting. I didn't think there would be a correlation between income and opposing the amendment, but I suppose that goes hand in hand with being more educated. Basically the more educated one is and the more money one makes, they are less likely to be a bigot worried about restricting other people's rights.
The age correlation was expected of course. Young people today just aren't as hung up on sexual orientation as previous generations. That is one of the most powerful arguments for voting against the amendment. Everyone knows that marriage equality is coming...the writing is on the wall. This amendment is merely an effort to delay that outcome, nothing more.
I had to laugh at males being more in favor of the amendment than women...what is wrong with us? White men are the last bastions of bigotry and racism on this planet. They have forever owned everything and made the rules for everyone. They will do anything to prevent that from changing.
Full disclosure: I'm a 30 year old white male. Straight, but not narrow.
I think that Minnesota Republicans should break new ground and put love in the Constitution. Why should a Minnesotan be allowed to love any perosn of the same sex? By their way of thinking, such love is unnatural and needs punishment. We ought to ban it!
Minnesota citizens will do the right thing and stand up for justice. Equal rights for all.
Guess this just means everyone should get their well educated friends from the Twin City Metro area to go vote next year so we can fight bigotry and make a step toward giving all US citizens their fundamental right to marry.
and again - WHY any Minority RIGHTS are bein put up to a popularity vote is disgusting and Un-American.....Pathetic america, pathetic.
Why on Earth would you want this passed? To Amend hate into our Constitution?! I'm a Catholic, but understand the separation of Church and State...
