Views change on gays adopting children

TALLAHASSEE, FL (AP) - A majority of Floridians believe it's ok for homosexuals 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.
