Bachmann Amendment Supporters Lament Decrease in Support

Andy Aplikowski over at Residual Forces is irritated.

Michele Bachmann posted the results of her 2005 legislative constituent survey.

4. Do you believe the Minnesota Constitution should be amended to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman?

Yes - 66% No - 34%

8. Should state government provide taxpayer funds or subsidies to help build pro sports stadiums?

Yes - 19% No - 81%

More of Michele Bachmann's constituents oppose public subsidies for stadiums than support the marriage amendment. Note that Michele Bachmann worded her question to address the issue of marriage only, and didn't address the issue of "legal equivalent".
