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:
- George Bush “A Proud Tradition” (present) = lost
- Bill Clinton “It’s Time To Change America” (future) = won
- John McCain “Country First” (present) = lost
- Barack Obama “Change We Need” (future) = won
- 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.
