Not Larry Sabato has a short story on a Mason-Dixon poll which shows the marriage amendment is favored by Virginians 56-38%. This seems to be consistent with what I have been hearing, although I believe the margin is even more favorable in Manassas, Manassas Park and Prince William County.
I understand that the Jeanette Rishell campaign may have polled on this question as part of their efforts, and most likely have learned how unpopular her stand on supporting gay “marriage” will be with 50th District voters. What I can’t fathom is why Jeanette Rishell would agree to speak at an anti-marriage amendment rally next weekend. With the press likely present to report on the event, and who will inevitably provide good coverage, this can’t be a smart election strategy.
At least she’s remaining consistent with her earlier statements.
UPDATE: More information on the poll is here
