70% of US voters willing to vote for gay president

01/05/2019 12:56

The openly gay presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg has attained a significant level of popularity regarding the upcoming presidential election in the US. A new survey has been conducted in order to explore the extent in which American voters are willing to vote for a gay candidate.

The survey was conducted by Quinnipiac and has shown that 85% of the Democrats and 46% of the Republicans are open to idea of an openly homosexual president. This could be why it does not come as a surprise that the openly gay Pete Buttigieg has become a popular figure among Democrats. However, the survey did not deliver solely optimistic results: one of the findings showed that 53% of the voters believe that the US is not quite ready for a gay president.

Voters between the ages of 18 and 34 are most likely to support a gay candidate: 82% confirmed this, 14% said they would not support this, and 4% were unsure. Hispanic voters especially seemed supportive of a gay president: 77% in contrast to 69% of Caucasian voters and 66% of African-American voters.

The results appeared to be less optimistic when asked about their current view on the country. Only 36% believed that the US is currently ready for a gay president. The divide among Democrats is almost equal: 43% feels that the country is ready, while 49% thinks otherwise (8% was unsure). The difference appeared greater among Republicans: 30% said the country is ready for a gay president, 60% said it was not and 10% was unsure.
