It seems all that pandering out of Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign has paid off.
According to a poll of 816 LGBT voters by YouGov and Out Magazine, Warren took the lead among the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate pool with 31 percent support of all respondents.
Sen. Bernie Sanders trailed behind Warren with 18 percent support, followed by former Vice President Joe Biden with 16 percent support, and openly gay Mayor Pete Buttigieg with 14 percent support.
The remaining Dems only garnered single-digit support among voters. Sen. Kamala Harris led the lower half of the group with six percent support, followed by Sen. Cory Booker with three percent support. Andrew Yang, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro each had two percent support. The remaining candidates took just one percent of voters less.
National Democratic Primary Among LGBTQ+ Voters:
— Political Polls (@PpollingNumbers) November 25, 2019
Seventy-seven percent of the LGBT voters identified as “very or somewhat liberal,” YouGov Blue Vice President Alissa Stollwerk said, noting that less than sixty percent of Democratic primary voters overall identify as such.
The results themselves show the relationship between Warren and LGBTQ+ voters likely goes deeper than partisanship. She had the highest favorable ratings among candidates by a 10-point margin, with 54 percent viewing her highly favorably. Meanwhile, survey respondents also felt she had the best chance to beat President Donald Trump in a general election: 53 percent felt she could do so, followed by Biden (52 percent), Sanders (46 percent), and Buttigieg (29 percent).
But if the survey is good news for the Warren campaign, the results should be a cause for concern in the Biden camp. His unfavorables among LGBTQ+ voters were disproportionately high: 33 percent of respondents viewed him highly or somewhat unfavorably, a greater percentage than every other candidate except for Gabbard and Williamson. They both netted 38 percent unfavorable ratings.
Warren has demonstrated her unflinching commitment to the LGBT movement and the privileges of LGBT people over the rights of virtually every other American.
She is a clear danger to the liberty of anyone who doesn’t fall in line with the leftist agenda. She must be stopped.
