Interesting polling results in Minnesota on voter ID, stadium, marriage amendment, etc.

The Survey USA poll had some interesting results beyond the marriage amendment (up by 15%, 52% to 37%) and the presidential race (Obama up 46% to 40% over Romney).

It shows the photo ID amendment winning 65% to 28%.

Voters opposed to the Vikings stadium deal are more passionate about it than proponents.  If a legislator voted for the amendment, 33% of voters say they are less likely to vote for him while 23% say they are more likely to vote for him.  42% say no difference.

And the biggest issues for state voters are not surprisingly job creation 32% and taxes 27%.  Then comes health care 17% and education 15%.

Takeaways from the polling numbers on the ballot questions?  Opponents won't win on the merits so their only recourse is mislabeling and obscuring what "yes" and "no" votes mean so voter's won't vote on the merits of the questions.
