Gay Marriage Has Strong Support in Washington, Even in Minnesota

Support for same-sex marriage has soared in Washington but is sagging in Minnesota, according to two polls released this week on ballot measures facing voters in both states this fall.

Referendum 74, legalizing marriage equality, is leading 56-38 percent in the latest SurveyUSA poll of Washington voters for King-5 News, after being up by a narrower 50-43 percent margin six weeks ago.

In Minnesota, however, results of a new Public Policy Polling survey show a dead heat:  48 percent support, and 47 percent oppose a state constitutional amendment that would define “marriage” as exclusively between a man and a woman.
