Via Qunnipiac Polling:
American voters say 68 – 27 percent, including 55 – 39 percent among voters in military households, that transgender people should be allowed to serve in the military, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today.
Republicans opposed transgender service 60 – 32 percent, but every other party, gender, education, age or racial group supports transgender service by margins of 22 percentage points or higher, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds.
By an 89 – 8 percent margin, American voters say it should be illegal for an employer to discriminate against an employee based on sexual orientation. More acceptance of transgender people would be “a good thing for the country,” 46 percent of voters say, as 14 percent say it would be “a bad thing” and 39 percent say it would not make much difference.
