POLL: Marriage Equality Up In Swing States OH, FL, VA

As the election gets closer and closer there seem to be more and more polls out, especially of the "swing states" which will decide the winner of the presidency. Three of the most important are Florida (29 electoral votes), Ohio (18 electoral votes) and Virginia (13 electoral votes). While polling on the presidential race, some pollsters have also asked about marriage equality.

A recent Washington Post poll from earlier this week asked the question "Do you think it should be legal or illegal for gay and lesbian couples to get married?" and among registered voters the numbers were 54-33 in Florida, 52-37 in Ohio and 49-40 in Virginia in support of marriage equality.

This is another encouraging sign that marriage equality is a majority position throughout the country, which several nationwide polls have indicated for the last 18 months or so.
