Poll: 57 percent of Americans back bipartisan deal on LGBTQ rights, religious liberty

Fifty-seven percent of Americans support a bipartisan deal to reach a compromise on religious freedom and LGBTQ rights, according to new polling shared with our partners at the Washington Blade in advance of publication. With no hope in sight for the Equality Act — legislation to expand the prohibition on anti-LGBTQ discrimination under federal law — the poll suggests a compromise alternative, such as the Fairness for All Act, might be the way to go. The poll was sponsored by Alliance for Lasting Liberty, an organization that advocates for a solution along those lines. The poll finds supermajorities of Americans expressed strong support for LGBTQ rights across the board, including in health care, homeless shelters, and employment. Around three-fourths of Americans polled affirmatively for each on whether they were against anti-LGBTQ discrimination in all areas protected by civil rights laws.
