One out of every ten people voting on Super Tuesday identified as an LGBTQ person

Exit polling from NBC News shows that LGBTQ people have made up a huge percentage of voters on Super Tuesday. Between 6% – 13% of voters self-identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and/or transgender in 12 of the 14 states voting.

A third of LGBTQ people voting today were under 30. In a striking example of the devastating impact of HIV/AIDS on the community, 65 percent of LGBTQ voters were under the age of 45.

In both Maine and Massachusetts, 13 percent of Super Tuesday voters identified as part of the community. Only 4.9% of Maine residents identify as LGBTQ; 5.4% of Massachusetts residents do.

Half of LGBTQ voters identified as “very liberal” in the polling. Only a quarter of all voters identified as “very liberal.”

1. That is interesting numbers, but certainly understandable

The community has a lot to lose under another Trump administration.

2. This would imply better than average civic engagement.

Whatever else is going on (and there is plenty) we are just plain better citizens (on average).
