Polltakers at the Minnesota House of Representatives' State Fair booth strongly believe that the state’s minimum wage should be increased, medical marijuana should be legalized and background checks should be required when purchasing a firearm from a private seller at a gun show.
Conducted by the nonpartisan House Public Information Services Office, the annual Minnesota State Fair poll is an informal, unscientific survey of issues discussed in prior legislative sessions and may be topics of discussionin 2014.
More than 7,000 fairgoers took the poll during the 2013 Minnesota State Fair's 12-day run that ended Monday. Read more about this year's results here.
