"POLLS: Marriage Equality Support Strong In Swing States"

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.
