We all know that Hillary Clinton is getting the vast majority of the LGBT vote. A new poll by NBC News, however, quantifies that exact number.
Clinton has the support of 72% of LGBT voters and Trump has 20%. The Green party candidate, Stein, picks up the remaining 8%.
It’s almost surprising to see how many gay people are backing Trump, considering he selected Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate. The Indiana Governor is known for his anti-LGBT record, as he backed his state’s “religious freedom law,” which permitted businesses to turn away customers based on their sexuality.
Trump has famously said “I will do everything in my power to protect our LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology.” But we have yet to experience that.
