TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A majority of Floridians believe it is
OK for gays and lesbians to adopt children.
A Quinnipiac University poll of 1,370 Floridians showed 55
percent favor doing away with a state law that prohibits gays from
adopting compared to 39 percent who want to keep the ban. Democrats
and independent voters were in the majority favoring of eliminating
the ban while Republicans and white evangelical Christians
supported the law.
But only 27 percent said gays should be allowed to marry while
35 percent favored civil unions and 31 percent said there should be
no legal recognition of gay unions.
Quinnipiac's poll released Thursday has an error rate of plus or
minus 2.7 percentage points.
