Strange all this effort to pass such strange and activistic laws so close to closure is it not? Not for a President who should have stuck to ****ty activism and continued with her attempt to turn Chicago, and not the whole country, into just another Detroit Dream Resort/Revenue Hog for skimmers run by Dirty Dut Dut Schills...

Disentangling Attitudes Toward Transgender Bathroom Use

"CNN published poll results on the topic based on interviewing conducted April 28-May 1, accompanied by the headline "6-in-10 Oppose Bills Like the North Carolina Transgender Bathroom Law." As is often the case, news outlets picked up the results with a typical headline, reading "The First Major Poll on 'Bathroom Bills' Is Good News for Transgender Advocates."

Here's the specific wording of the CNN question:

"Overall, would you say you favor or oppose laws that require transgender individuals to use facilities that correspond to their gender at birth rather than their gender identity? Do you [favor/oppose] that strongly or somewhat?"

The results, as reflected in the headlines, show that 57% "somewhat" or "strongly" oppose and 38% "strongly" or "somewhat" favor these laws.

Fast forward to a week or so later, when we at Gallup asked about the issue in a somewhat different format. Rather than asking an "up or down" question about a specific law, we gave the respondents two options, as follows:

"In terms of policies governing public restrooms, do you think these policies should -- [ROTATED: require transgender individuals to use the restroom that corresponds with their birth gender (or should these policies) allow transgender individuals to use the restroom that corresponds with their gender identity]?"

The results from this question wording were the opposite of the CNN responses. We found 50% opted for the first option that requires transgender individuals to use a restroom corresponding with their birth gender, while 40% chose the latter option, allowing them to use a bathroom corresponding with their gender identity.

More recently, a May 13-17 New York Times/CBS News poll asked about the issue in a format that was generally the same as that of Gallup:

"Do you think people who are transgender -- that is, someone who identifies themselves as the sex or gender different from the one they were born as -- [ROTATED] should be allowed to use the public bathrooms of the gender they identify with or should they have to use the public bathrooms of the gender they were born as?

The results were similar to the Gallup results, with 46% choosing the "born as" option and 41% choosing the "identify as" option.

If they want to pee on the girls toilet seats that's no skin off my knuckles.

The girls will deal with them.
