Poll: VA voters likely to approve discriminatory nonsense

by Jeremy Hooper

   A new Virginia poll suggests that the state's proposed marriage ban will pass when it heads to voters in the fall (56% support, 38% oppose).

Relatedly, a new Paul that just moved into our building suggests that many of the same people who were vehemently opposed to interracial marriage back in his day now act as if they never took such a discriminatory position, something he predicts will happen when gay marriage gains its inevitable societal acceptance.

The poll has a margin of error of 4%; the Paul has a margin of error of "his memory's not what it used to be" and "yet he's still capable of cognizant thought."

***UPDATE: A reader has pointed us to another Virginia poll in which voters were read the actual language that will be on the ballot in the fall. In that poll, courtesy of the Commonwealth Coalition, 54% of likely voters said they will either vote NO or are undecided.
