In August, The St. Cloud Times wrote about the marriage amendment, undecided voters and the constitutional provision (a blank vote helps the NO side) that is unique to Minnesota. The article includes several quotes from both sides of the issue. Chuck Darrell, Communications Director for Minnesota for Marriage, had this to say:
The polling shows that the majority of people in Minnesota are going to vote yes. It’s our job to identify them and get them to the polls.
However, the article points to several polls that show conflicting numbers. Additionally, there is debate as to how many voters are truly undecided on this issue:
…just how many voters are on the fence on the amendment. [A Minnesotans United volunteer] says a significant share of Central Minnesota voters he’s spoken to — he estimates one-third or more — say they haven’t decided how they’ll vote.
Statewide polls tell a somewhat different story, suggesting that only about one-tenth are undecided or won’t vote on the amendment.
Regardless of the actual number, we’re certainly in for a fight-to-the-finish match up.
