Poll: Only 24% Approve Of Trump’s LGBT Rights Policies

The Hill reports:

Only 24 percent of U.S. adults approve of the Trump administration’ handling of LGBTQ rights while 38 percent disapprove, A Hill-YouGov poll has found. Republicans expressed stronger support than Democrats, but neither political party expressed overwhelming support for the administration’s LGBTQ policies.

Just 8 percent of Democratic respondents either somewhat or strongly approve of the administration’s handling of LGBTQ issues, compared to 47 percent of Republicans. Sixty-seven percent of Democrats somewhat or strongly disapproved compared to just 12 percent of Republicans.

The survey also found that half of adults support legislation to ban discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations based on sexual orientation and gender identity, as the House-passed Equality Act aims to do. Only 21 percent opposed such legislation while 19 percent were neutral.
