This campaign cycle Romney's position is that “that gay adoption should be assessed on a state-by-state basis – not at the federal level.” But in 2006 Romney told the Boston Globe that gay couples “a legitimate interest in being able to receive adoptive services.” It's unclear if Romney personally opposes gay adoption, a position which could hurt him with evangelical voters who make up the base of the Republican Party.
