Courtesy of Public Policy Polling (click on image below to “embiggen”), Virginia’s looking pretty darned progressive these days — strong majority support for background checks to purchase a gun (86%-8%), for Medicaid expansion (56%-30%), for gay marriage (only 27% say it’s a negative thing) and for paid sick days (64%-19%); and even slight plurality support (44%-42%) for “Obamacare.” 🙂

P.S. Also, “Just 35% of Virginians support the flying of the Confederate flag over government buildings, to 51% who are opposed.” The only one I disagree with my fellow Virginians on is the R**skins name, where “Only 22% of Virginians support changing the name…66% are opposed,” although “Democrats (39/41) closely divided.”
