President Trump continues to make HUGE inroads with communities that have historically voted for Democrats.
Could this be why some far-left leaders are ringing the alarms for Joe Biden despite the fact that most nationwide polls show that he is leading?
Crazy Bernie, for example, has raised concerns about Biden's campaign.
And for good reason!
One of the latest polls shows that up to 45% of queer men will vote FOR President Trump in November.
This is BIG news.
The LGBT community typically votes for Democrats.
If Trump continues to make inroads with minority communities, it will be impossible for Biden to win in November.
Major organizations have picked up on this poll.
Newsweek was the first news organization to break the news:
Trump has made inroads with the black community.
He is earning record support among the hispanic community.
And now, he has easily earned the highest share of support among gay men for a Republican presidential candidate!
According to Newsweek:
A recent survey of 1,200 queer men in the United States found that 45 percent planned on voting for Republican President Donald Trump. Comparatively, 51 percent said they would vote for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
The poll's results fall very close to recent national polling showing 50 percent of voters supporting Biden and 43 percent supporting Trump.
The poll, conducted by the queer men's social app Hornet, actually asked 10,000 of its users worldwide about their preferred presidential candidate. But while 66 percent of worldwide users supported Biden and 34 percent supported Trump, the percentages among U.S. men were much closer.
Of the 1,200 men living in the United States, 49 percent said that they do not support Trump at all and 11 percent said they disagree with him on most issues. Nine percent said they agree with Trump on some issues and disagree with him on others. Only 27 percent of U.S.-based respondents said they either mostly or fully supported Trump.
However, 10 percent of the U.S. men who said they "do not support [Trump] at all" said that they will vote for him regardless.
When user responses were broken out continentally, the majority of queer men on every continent supported Biden more than Trump by margins of 54 to 25 percent.
Hornet users in every country, except for two, also supported Biden over Trump. The only two countries to do otherwise were Taiwan, where 47 percent supported Biden and 51 percent supported Trump, and Russia, where 38 percent supported Biden and 58 percent supported Trump.
Exit polls from the 2016 presidential elections found that at least 75 percent of LGBTQ voters supported Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over Trump. A reported 14 percent favored Trump.
Soon after the 2016 election, NBC News interviewed some LGBTQ voters from that 14 percent contingent to find that most were more concerned about issues of gun rights, undocumented immigration, job creation and stopping Islamic radicals moreso than Trump's goals for the LGBTQ community.
Though Trump was lauded by some Republicans for mentioning the LGBTQ community during his speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention, his administration has repeatedly rolled back pre-existing LGBTQ rights and written amicus briefs to the U.S. Supreme Court in support of anti-gay discrimination.
Trump has continued to defy expectations.
If this poll materializes into real life votes, then Joe Biden will LOSE a reliable voting block that has historically voted for Democrats.
This isn't coincidence.
It has quietly gone unreported in the mainstream media...
But the Trump campaign has been strategically reaching out to the gay community.
According to USA Today during the week of the DNC:
For years, Democratic Party leaders have taken for granted the lesbian and gay community — along with other minority communities — thinking they had no where else to turn. Those days are over.
I've fought for civil rights for gay Americans for the past four decades. Today, the Republican Party is delivering real results and leadership for our community:
It hasn’t always been this way. For years, the GOP generally stood against the inclusion of gay and lesbian conservatives. As one of the Republican National Committee's first openly gay members, and a longtime leader of Log Cabin Republicans, I've worked tirelessly alongside many friends and colleagues to pull the party into the future. Today, thanks in large part to the leadership of President Donald Trump, the party has delivered meaningful policy victories for gays and lesbians.
It should come as no surprise that Trump’s agenda has been a boon to the gay community. Through his philanthropic work over the years with charities combating the AIDS crisis, his previous support of amending the 1964 Civil Rights Act to include a ban on discrimination based on sexual orientation, and his early support of gay couples having the same rights and protections as straight couples, Trump was an ally long before he was president. He is likely even the first private club owner in Palm Beach, Florida, to admit an openly gay couple.
He didn’t abandon these principles when he assumed his position behind the Resolute Desk.
In 2019, Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar announced that pharmaceutical company Gilead Sciences Inc., would donate pre-exposure prophylaxis medication for uninsured, high-risk HIV individuals.
As part of the president's “Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America” initiative, this medication, which could run up to as much as $20,000 per patient, per year, would be distributed to up to 200,000 individuals each year through at least Dec. 31, 2025.
The Trump plan is focused on communities most in need and has received support from those who have been involved in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
In similar fashion, Trump announced during Pride Month in 2019 that his administration was launching a global campaign to end the criminalization of homosexuality. His leadership on this issue couldn’t be more necessary — even in 2020, 72 countries still identify same-sexual orientation as criminal, including eight where it is punishable by death.
This campaign was spearheaded by former U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, an openly gay member of the administration who subsequently served as acting director of U.S. national intelligence, becoming the first openly gay Cabinet member in our history. In coordination with the United Nations, the European Union and other human rights organizations, the campaign’s goal is to pressure nations into ending homophobic laws, securing the safety and freedom of all LGBT individuals throughout the world.
As the Trump administration continues important strides on the world stage, the victories at home continue as well.
Mary Rowland, a member of the Lesbian & Gay Bar Association of Chicago, was confirmed in 2019 as a federal district judge for the U.S. District Court of Northern Illinois. Additionally, Trump pick Patrick Bumatay, an openly gay Filipino American judge, was confirmed to the influential U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit late last year.
These accomplishments should not suggest the president's work is finished.
Before being elected president, Donald Trump supported amending the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include sexual orientation; his administration's resistance to protecting gay, lesbian and transgender employees from discrimination in the workplace in the recent Supreme Court case was thus disappointing. I'd also encourage the president to reconsider his stance on transgender men and women serving in the military.
The mainstream media likes to paint Trump as a bigot.
But those who have been paying attention know that he is the most pro-gay president in recent history.
Trump's outreach to the LGBT community appears to be paying off.
If 45% of queer men actually end up voting for Trump, it would be one of the many naims in Joe Biden's electoral coffin.
