I'd just point out the following, the actual ballot in November will explain this as well, but pollsters and news organizations may be not be aware of this and is important to know.

The requirements for the approval of constitutional amendments in Minnesota are somewhat unusual. In order to win approval, an amendment must receive "yes" votes from a majority of all ballots cast. Not voting on the amendment is essentially a "no" vote. So a hypothetical election in which an amendment receives 49% "yes" votes, 20% "no" votes, and 31% leave the question blank, the amendment does not pass. A successful amendment would need "yes" votes from a majority of the ballots cast, like 51%.

Surprised that so many haven't heard of SOPA; it's been all over the news lately. It's hard to vote on the issues when you don't know what they are.

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
