Supporters of legalized same-sex marriage in Ohio are getting some good news. It’s a new poll from the Washington Post that shows a majority of voters here now favor allowing gay people to marry. The poll results could helps boost a petition drive that aims to put a gay marrige proposal onto the ballot next year. But, as statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen reports, there are still skeptics, plus downright opponents.

A Washington Post poll shows 52 percent of Ohioans say gay marriage should be legal.  37 percent say it shouldn’t.
