NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WVIR) - A new poll from the Wason Center at Christopher Newport University finds a majority of Virginia voters support cutting the 2.5% gas tax.

According to the poll, 59% of voters prefer spending the state budget surplus on education, public safety, and social services instead of retuning it to taxpayers.

A majority of those polled also said they support COVID-19 vaccine mandates for first responders, teacher, and medical providers but not students.
