Just four months after Minnesota voters rejected a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage, a new poll finds that a majority of Minnesotans still oppose marriage equality for gays and lesbians. Fifty-three percent of Minnesotans say the state statute banning same-sex unions should stand, 38 percent say legislators should overturn the law this year, and 9 percent are undecided, according to a poll commissioned by the Star-Tribune. The new poll offers a fresh snapshot of an issue that has divided the state, and comes just days after lawmakers launched a long-anticipated effort to legalize gay marriage in Minnesota by this summer.
