Most LGBTQ voters in the U.S. prefer President Biden to Trump


LGBTQ Americans are highly motivated to vote in November, with a majority preferring President Joe Biden to Donald Trump according to polling result released by GLAAD.

The survey asked 1,000 LGBTQ and non-LGBTQ registered voters about how likely they are to vote in the 2024 presidential election and other key campaign issues. 

Among the poll’s key findings, 83 percent of registered LGBTQ voters said they would definitely vote in November, while 11 percent said they probably would. More than half of those voters said they prefer the Democratic incumbent, with 68 percent indicating they would likely vote for President Biden versus 15 percent who said they prefer Trump.

The polling results found that likely voters who identify as LGBTQ in seven key battleground states (Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin) prefer Joe Biden to Trump by more than 57 percentage points.

In his recent State of the Union address, President Joe Biden referred some important issues on LGBTQ topics.

President Biden called against the recent surge in book bans, stating, “Banning books... It’s wrong!” This declaration was a rebuke of attempts to censor educational materials, with Biden emphasizing the importance of confronting history to forge a better future: “Instead of erasing history, let’s make history!”

President Biden also addressed the challenges faced by transgender Americans, reaffirming his commitment to their rights and dignity in the face of escalating hostility. “To all the transgender Americans watching at home, especially the young people, you are so brave. I want you to know your president has your back,” he declared.

With both the U.S. House and Senate up for grabs in 2024, LGBTQ voters could also play a key role in Congressional elections this year.
