While it is certainly not yet time to break out the champagne, the latest polling numbers from Public Policy Polling are trending in the Vote NO direction. In numbers released yesterday, PPP shows that 49% of voters are opposed to amending the Minnesota state constitution to limit the rights of committed same-sex couples. This is a 2% increase in amendment opposition since PPP conducted their last poll in September.
Amendment supporters still have a very strong showing with 46% of likely voters in Minnesota set to vote yes to limit the freedom to marry (the October poll shows a decrease in support of two percentage points). 5% of voters are still undecided; this is unchanged from the September poll.
With all of that said, we know that amendment support has always been underrepresented in pre-polling. Plus, with a margin of error of +/- 3.2%, we still have work to do. Here are three quick ideas on how you can help maintain our Vote NO momentum:
- Update your Facebook cover graphic to let your friends kNOw why defeating this amendment is important to you
- Sign up to call the 49% of voters that are on our side to remind them the importance of getting out to vote on election day
- Tell your story one more time. If we defeat this amendment, it will because of YOU
With less than 30 days to go, please help make a difference today!
