The SCSU Survey research center has completed is annual fall statewide survey that focused on the upcoming election and issues facing Minnesotans.
According to the preliminary results, 55 percent of likely voters would vote for the Voter I.D. amendment with 39 percent who would vote against it. However, 33 percent of likely voters are still confused about the amendment. The results also show that 51 percent of likely voters would vote no on the marriage amendment, with 44 percent voting yes. However, 31 percent of likely voters are still confused about the amendment.
The results showed that 57 percent of those who said religion was important in their lives said the marriage amendment should be amended, whereas only 29 percent of those who said religion was not important believed that the Constitution should be amended. This shows that there is a significant association between the importance of religion and the decision to amend or not amend.
The survey consisted of 600 randomly chosen adult Minnesotans that were interviewed between Monday, October 15th and Sunday, October 21st. The interviewers called both land-lines and cell phones through a phone bank.
