A Gallup report reveals that the LGBT voting population in the United States could potentially be the deciding factor in who wins the Presidential election.
See their findings after the jump.
The Williams Institute at UCLA writes:
"A new Gallup Report finds that 71% of LGBT Americans who are registered voters support President Obama for reelection, while 22% support Governor Mitt Romney.
From June to September, non-LGBT registered voters preferred Romney to Obama by one percentage point, 47% to 46%. However, when LGBT voters are added to electorate, Obama moves slightly ahead of Romney (47% to 45%). These findings suggest that the highly Democratic vote of the LGBT population could be enough to swing a very close election toward Obama.
The findings are based on more than 120,000 interviews of adults in the US, which represents the largest representative sample of LGBT men and women ever collected."
Every vote counts, but it looks like every LGBT vote could count even more in an election that could change the future of our community.
Check out more of Gallup's key findings (did you know that as a population we're less likely to vote than non-LGBTers??) here.
