Independence Party caucuses oppose marriage amendment, public stadium funding

It may not have a presidential candidate — yet — but the Independence Party also caucused Tuesday night, electing local officers and conducting the other housekeeping duties typically done on caucus night.

But then, the IP, who allowed those members who didn’t show up on location to caucus online, did a little survey of wide interest to most Minnesotans.

Party members were asked two questions:

• Should the Minnesota Constitution be amended to limit marriage to one man and one woman?  (Outcome: 80.7 percent no, 19.3 percent yes.)
• Should taxpayer money at any level — state, county or city — be used to partially fund a stadium for the Minnesota Vikings.  (Outcome: 61.5 percent no, 38.5 percent yes.)

The party did not announce how many people participated.
