Nearly 70 percent support nondiscrimination protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, though support has fallen since 2015. A majority of Americans across every state and almost every demographic support LGBTQ nondiscrimination protections, according to a poll released Tuesday by the nonprofit research firm Public Religion Research Institute. The nonpartisan organization’s “American Values Atlas” survey found that 69 percent of Americans support “broad nondiscrimination protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.” That includes majorities in all major religions, from 90 percent of Unitarian/Universalists to 53 percent of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
