Washington Post Virginia poll: gay marriage vs. gay adoption
By Peyton M. Craighill

By a 20 percentage point margin 55 to 35 percent Virginia adults think it should be legal for gay and lesbian couples to adopt a child in the state. But they are much more closely divided on the question of gay marriage, splitting 47 to 43 percent in a new Washington Post poll.

Theres plenty of overlap on these two issues; 42 percent think both gay marriage and gay adoption should be legal and 30 percent consistently say both should be illegal. But 10 percent of all adults in the state say gay adoption is okay but gay marriage is not. Fewer, just 3 percent, say gay adopting should be illegal but gay marriage legal and another 15 percent are unsure on one or the other, or both.
