45% Gay Men Supporting Trump, and He Applauds Them
I never get into anything political here for two reasons. One, I’m not that interested in politics. I care more about individual issues…like gay marriage. And two, I don’t want to be accused of bias. I like to keep this web site and my books objective at all times. In short, I’m not supposed to be commenting about politics. It’s just not my thing.
With that said, I do find this interesting. I will admit that I’m a registered Democrat and I have been all my life, and I know a lot of gay men in real life who are also registered Democrats. So I find this 45% number hard to believe. I’m not knocking any gay Republicans or Trump supporters. I’m not slamming them. I’m not that kind of Democrat. I just don’t think there are that many gay people supporting Trump. Of course I could be wrong, though.
The global results found Trump trailing Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, 34 percent to 66 percent, but when breaking out the 1,200 respondents who reported being U.S. citizens, the difference went from 32 points to 6, Trump at 45 percent and Biden 51 percent.
Here’s the rest. Frankly, I think it’s more like 25%. I do come into contact with gay people who support Trump, but just not that many. And these lines are very clearly drawn.
