According to a recent survey conducted by The Economist and YouGov, there is a clear difference amongst American citizens on the topic of mainstream acceptance of transgenderism.
Participants were asked to rate how much progress has been made toward transgender acceptance in society. Only 32% of respondents agreed with the statement, “Our society has gone too far in accepting people who are transgender,” while 33% disagreed and stated society had not gone far enough in welcoming transgender people. The remaining 18% felt that society is “about right.”
According to a recent survey conducted by Rasmussen Reports, most American adults favor a boycott of Anheuser-Busch due to the company’s association with transgender TikTok star Dylan Mulvaney.
In this poll, respondents were questioned whether or not they had heard calls to stop buying Anheuser Busch beer because of the company’s support of Dylan Mulvaney. What is your opinion on a boycott of Anheuser Busch products?
Most people (54%) say they favor a boycott in some capacity, with 37% saying they are “strongly” in favor of one.
67% of Republicans and 54% of independents say they support a boycott in some capacity, while only 44% of Democrats agree. This is in contrast to the 43% of Democrats against it.
In addition, 40% of respondents indicated they would be “less likely” to buy Bud Light if it were associated with Mulvaney, compared to 19% who said they would be “more likely” to buy it and 37% who said it “does not make much difference.”
Fifty-two percent of those polled said they believe large firms are placing “too much” emphasis on transgender issues. There is overwhelming consensus among Republicans (67%), independents (50%), and conservatives (41%).
There is a partisan difference on this issue, with 58% of Republicans believing that society has gone too far in tolerating transgenderism and 52% of Democrats believing that society has not gone far enough. Among those who don’t identify as Democrats or Republicans, opinions are divided: 38% say society has gone too far, 32% say society hasn’t gone far enough, 20% say society is about right, and another 20% are unclear.
Anheuser-Busch reportedly lost more than $6 billion in market value after their promotional effort with Mulvaney, which provoked widespread anger.
