66% of Minnesota State Fair Attendees Oppose Anti-Gay Marriage Constitutional Amendment

I complained yesterday about the glitter-bombing of Minnesota for Marriage's fair booth by marriage equality activists.  Here is some brighter marriage equality news coming out of the Minnesota State Fair.  112,549 people were polled by the nonpartisan House Public Information Services at the state fair.  Of those polled, 66.5% of them believed that the Minnesota state constitution should not be amended to define marriage as "only a union of one man and one woman."  Only 29.8% of those polled wanted to amend the state's constitution.  3.7% people had no opinion.

An earlier survey conducted by the Star Tribune Minnesota Poll in the recent past found that 55% of respondents opposed a constitutional amendment banning gays and lesbians from marrying.
