ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) -

A new Star Tribune Minnesota Poll shows 53 percent of the state supports the current law banning same-sex marriage, while 38 percent support a bill to overturn the law this year.

Nine percent of the 800 respondents were undecided. The poll conducted Feb. 25 to 27 has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

The poll found opposition to same-sex marriage is strongest in outstate Minnesota (73 percent support the status quo), while those in theThe Twin Cities metro support the campaign to legalize same sex unions, by a small margin.

Younger Minnesotans are more likely to support same-sex marriage, with a majority of respondents ages 18 to 34 saying the law should change.
