Poor child, are you going to inform voters or simple pretend they follow an idiot(you) blindly ???



A new poll shows Minnesota's marriage amendment trailing by 7 points.

Voters on Tuesday will decide on a constitutional amendment which would define marriage as a heterosexual union.

According to a Public Policy Polling survey of 1,164 likely voters, 45 percent of respondents said they plan to vote for the amendment, while 52 percent say they plan to vote against it. Three percent said they remain undecided.

“The marriage amendment is trailing because of a massive generational divide. Seniors support it by a 57/40 margin but every other age group opposes it, including a 36/62 margin against it among voters under 30,” pollsters wrote in announcing their results.“Republicans support it (79%) and Democrats oppose it (76%) in almost equal numbers, but independents tip the balance by opposing it 41/55.”

If the amendment fails, it will be the first such loss for marriage equality foes, marking a real turning point for supporters.

Obama leading

He said that at least for the moment, Obama enjoys the edge in the race, even though the American economy is only sluggishly recovering from the severe downturn in 2008 and 2009, and many voters blame him for the slow advance.

“Incumbents do have an advantage over challengers," Wayne said of U.S. elections. "Americans prefer the devil they know to the devil they don’t know. There are signs that the economy is not getting weaker. People seem to be a little bit more confident now, or maybe a little less fearful. And the anger against Obama has dissipated a little bit. People are disappointed in his presidency, but with the exception of Republicans, they’re not angry.”

Wayne said that Romney, a former governor of Massachusetts, has yet to convince enough voters that he should replace the president.

"Romney’s got to prove that he is the equal of the president," Wayne concluded. "We don’t change horses until either we are very dissatisfied or somebody makes an acceptable case for change. Romney hasn’t made that case yet. And while people are dissatisfied, they’re not very dissatisfied.”

Vote no, the moron above only knows how to hate.

Incredibly hypocritical for people who claim that the government is too big to now try to enforce an actual law that limits one's freedom to marry. The Vote Yes people claim that the institution of marriage is sacred and that gay people will ruin it.

How many Republicans/Conservatives get divorced each year? Didn't Newt Gingrich leave one of his wives when she was going through cancer treatment? Is that sacred?

It's a shame that the partners of gay veterans are not eligible for their veteran benefits. It's a shame that Mitt Romney would be OK prohibiting gay people from visiting their partners in hospitals. There is absolutely no reason other than fear and ignorance to prohibit gay people from marrying those they love.

And finally, the basis of the Vote Yes people is religion. Joe Biden said it best when asked about abortion during the debate. It is UNAMERICAN to push your religion and your religious views onto others. My religion is not necessarily yours. And my religion says that we are all equal.
