    I live in one of those districts that elected a democratic representative and senator, but voted "yes" on the amendment.  For these voters (there are a lot of older democrats here....in fact, I think the democrats as a whole are older than the republicans), the economic platform of the DFL trumps the social issues.  So, as long as the democrats do the right things with the social safety net, taxation, infrastructure spending, etc, they'll be given more leeway than you think on social issues.  

    Anyone who is enough of a bigot to vote against their own economic interests because of a single gay marriage vote is already a republican anyway.
