MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A new Star Tribune Minnesota Poll shows that Minnesotans tend to favor a constitutional change that would require voters to show government-issued photo IDs before casting ballots, but support for the idea has fallen over the past year.
Slightly more than half of likely voters polled - 52% - support the photo ID amendment while 44% oppose it and 4% are undecided.
The newspaper reports that support for a photo ID requirement is way down from the 80% support in a May 2011 Minnesota Poll, when the issue was debated as a change in state law rather than as a constitutional amendment.
The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 3.5%age points. It surveyed 800 likely voters between Sept. 17 and 19.
