HAMPTON-Virginians are evenly split on the idea of legalizing same-sex marriage in the Commonwealth, according to a new statewide survey by the Hampton University Center for Public Policy.

The poll was conducted Feb. 6, 8 and 9, less than a week before a federal judge ruled Virginia's 2006 voter-approved ban was unconstitutional.

The poll of 803 likely voters found 47 percent support marriage equality while 46 percent are against allowing same-sex couples to legally marry in the state.

Virginia voters approved the same-sex marriage ban 57 percent to 43 percent in 2006.
