A new Roanoke College poll shows growing support for marriage equality in Virginia, though still only a close 45 percent plurality supports it over 41 percent who oppose it. Other questions, however, reveal that when separated from the question of “marriage,” Virginians are much more eager to support same-sex couples. A solid 60 percent agree that same-sex couples “can be as good parents as heterosexual couples,” while only 27 percent disagree. Further, 62 percent believe same-sex couples “should have the same legal rights as heterosexual couples,” while just 28 percent disagree.
