NBC News: Voters in 10 battleground states overwhelmingly support LGBTQ rights, including a plurality, and on some issues a majority, of those who back the re-election of President Donald Trump according to a report released last week. [Ron: Yes, even people who support Trump are supporting gay rights. WTF? Don't ask. It's beyond understanding.]
Hart Research surveyed 400 likely voters in each of the 10 states: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin on behalf of the Human Rights Campaign, an LGBTQ advocacy group.
Two telephone polls conducted in the second half of September found that "voters have clear and abiding support for LGBTQ equality across a host of issues."
Less than 30 percent of respondents believed business owners had a right to deny service to LGBTQ customers, and a majority of respondents supported same-sex marriage and adoption. On the high end was Pennsylvania, with 67 percent supporting both. On the low end, only 50 percent of North Carolina voters approved of same-sex marriage, and 52 percent backed LGBTQ people's right to adopt.
The survey found Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee, leading President Donald Trump in all but three of the 10 states surveyed: Iowa, Ohio and Texas.
