153.1 - Good News: new poll says Virginia voters approve same-sex marriage

Good News:  new poll says Virginia voters approve same-sex marriage

Virginia is one of the states where a federal district court has struck down the state's ban on same-sex marriage, a ruling that, as in other recent cases, is on hold until the Court of Appeals, in this case the one for the Fourth Circuit, rules on the matter. Oral arguments before that court are scheduled for May.

So here's hoping that those judges are made aware of the findings of a new poll by Quinnipiac University, which finds that a right to marriage equality is now supported by 50% of Virginia voters, with only 42% opposed.

Women support it by a margin of 54-38, while men split with 46 percent in favor and 48 against, a gap within the poll's margin of error. But what's particularly striking is that those aged 18 to 29 endorse same-sex marriage by a margin of 69-25.

Justice is coming.
