Poll: Are Americans Ready For A Gay President?

Is the United States ready for a gay president? That’s what a new survey tried to find out.

This Quinnipiac University poll directly refers to Pete Buttigieg, who is a gay and married man and one of the top five candidates of the Democratic party in the 2020 presidential race.

Who is in favor of a gay president?

  • 70% of respondents say they are open to electing a gay president
  • including 86% of Democrats and Independents close to democrats

But are the United-States ready for a gay president?

  • only 36% believe so
  • 40% of whom are Democrats and Independents close to Democrats

There are still too many voters who are not ready:

  • 58% of Republicans
  • 32% of Independents
  • 11% of Democrats (some said they had to wait to see if Pete could be qualified before they could decide.)

When I look at these figures, I honestly expected more opposition, not you? 58% of Republicans. I would have thought of 70%, perhaps even 76%, with the atmosphere of hatred that has developed since Trump’s election.

For the time being, Pete Buttigieg’s sexuality is still a barrier for many people. They still focus too much on this before they think about his skills.

Are Americans ready for a female president?

Beyond that, the survey also highlighted a brand new fact, a great evolution, namely that the United States are ready for a woman president!

From now on, those who are against it only represent:

  • 36% of Republicans
  • 15% of Independents
  • 8% of Democrats

What an evolution in four years!

By the way, do you want to know the next President of the United States? Or at least to have a very clear idea of the winner? I mean before everyone else?

I’ll show you something I’ve learned recently. First, let me explain the concept to you.

To be a good leader, whether in a company, in sport or politics, you have to show the future; you have to give people hope.

And if you don’t, if you stay in the present, people don’t follow you.

So you have to look at the slogans:

1992

  • George Bush “A Proud Tradition” (present) = lost
  • Bill Clinton “It’s Time To Change America” (future) = won

2008

  • John McCain “Country First” (present) = lost
  • Barack Obama “Change We Need” (future) = won

2016

  • Hillary Clinton “I’m With Her” or “Stronger Together” (present) = lost
  • Donald Trump “Make America Great Again” (future) = won

It’s crazy, isn’t it? So look closely at the candidates’ slogans and ask yourself if he/she is talking about the future, it will give you an idea of who will have a chance and who won’t.
