WEST HOLLYWOOD — A survey carried out by gay social app Hornet has found that 45% of gay men in the United States said they would vote for Trump this November.
In a press release, Hornet said that they survey 10,000 of their users from around the world. Of those, 12% identified themselves as U.S. citizens. Of those 1,200 American men, 51% answered they would be voting for Joe Biden, while 45% said they would be casting their ballot for Donald Trump. Asked about their level of support for Trump’s term as president, 49% responded, “I do not support him at all”; 11% responded, “I disagree with him on most issues”; 9% responded, “I disagree with him on some issues and agree with him on others”; 11% responded, “I agree with him on most issues”; and 16% responded, “I fully support him.”
According to a Sept. 10 Monmouth University poll and updated averages of general election polls by FiveThirtyEight.com and 270towin.com, that is higher than the national average of support for Trump (42-43%).
Outside of the United States, a strong majority of gay men supported Biden. Only in Taiwan and Russia did Trump have majority support. In Taiwan, 47% of respondents back Biden and 51% back Trump. In Russia, 38% of respondents back Biden and 58% back Trump.
