New Poll Shows Americans Fed Up With LGBT Extremism

While Democratic strategists sort through the wreckage of recent elections, looking for clues about where they went wrong, there's another spectacular flop they can add to their political autopsy: radical transgenderism. 

According to pollsters, one issue that might have tipped the scales in Virginia (and rattled the entire New Jersey political establishment) is the Left's obsession with gender ideology. 

The American people might have been open to the movement two years ago -- but the last 24 months of pronoun disputes, bathroom attacks, woke curriculum, and transgender sports certainly seems to have cured them.


Most people didn't need the polling to confirm what the parents' uprising was already telling us: Americans are fed up with the Left's onslaught of LGBT extremism. It's everywhere -- in our grocery aisles, on our televisions, in our schools, even our greatest pastimes. 

These days, people can't even buy a candy bar without being hit over the head with the message that it's perfectly normal to choose your own reality. Turns out, the Left's ruthless, in-your-face crusade is turning people off. Big time.

When Harvard University teamed up with Harris Polling to take the country's temperature on the issue, even they were stunned at the shift. Americans aren't just opposed to the transgender ideology -- their opposition is skyrocketing. 

Usually, the far-Left likes to chip away public opinion, desensitizing them with personal stories, mainstream ads, and other disarming PR. That's clearly not working here. By a 62-38 margin, Americans don't think people should be able to choose their own genders and pronouns.

On its own, that's a bombshell statistic. A solid majority of the country rejects the gender extremism gripping our culture. But it's even more astounding when you consider where those numbers were two years ago. In 2019, the country was split right down the middle -- 50/50 -- on whether we should accommodate people who identify as transgender. 

That's a double-digit swing in favor of biological truth! Just as encouraging, Harvard/Harris asked if people believed there were two genders or more than two. Seventy-two percent of Americans (including 62 percent of Democrats) insisted there were just two.

Let's hope both political parties are listening. While the Democrats seem incapable of course correction, the Republican National Committee could certainly use some. After the GOP sweep in Virginia (thanks, in large part, to opposition over these very transgender policies), the RNC confused everyone this past weekend by embracing the LGBT cause voters rejected! 


Moms and dads, who've been working fast and furiously to stop the transgender agenda in public schools, have to be scratching their heads. For the last several months, Americans finally started viewing Republicans as the party of common sense on education and gender. 

Now, the RNC seems intent on jeopardizing their trust by throwing the door open to a movement that has been pushing policies that are hostile to religious freedom and parental rights.

Launching a Pride Coalition was a bad idea to begin with, but it seems especially tone-deaf now that Americans are running away from the agenda the RNC stuck their necks out to support. 

It may be time for new leadership at the RNC -- leadership that reflects the values of the party's own platform.
