MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A new poll shows the majority of Minnesotans surveyed oppose amending the state Constitution to ban gay marriage.

The Star Tribune Minnesota Poll says 55 percent of respondents oppose such a ban, while 39 percent favor it. Support for the ban seems to rise with age. Sixty percent of respondents aged 18 to 34 oppose the idea. Twenty-two-year-old Adam Leistiko of Edina says people shouldn’t be categorized or labeled because of their sexual orientation.

The Minnesota Senate approved the amendment this week. The House is expected to follow suit. Approval would place the question on the ballot next year.

The poll of 806 Minnesotans was done last week and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4.7 percentage points.
