The Washington Post conducted polling in the three swing states of Ohio, Florida, and Virginia, and found support for marriage equality to be quite strong. A majority of voters in Florida (54-33) and Ohio (52-37) believe it should be legal for same-sex couples to marry, as do a plurality (49-40) in Virginia. The Post notes that these numbers contradict the wide margins by which anti-equality constitutional amendments passed in all three states over the past decade , but unsurprisingly, young people consistently support the freedom to marry at higher rates.
