A majority of American voters believe the transgender movement has gone too far in recommending that underage children transition to the opposite sex via drugs and surgery, according to a new poll released Tuesday.

The poll, put out by Summit Ministries in conjunction with McLaughlin and Associates, was conducted between October 12 and 17 and surveyed 1,000 likely general election voters by political affiliation, race/ethnicity, age, and place of residence.

According to the poll, 65% of respondents believed the transgender movement had gone too far in recommending sex change surgeries and drugs to minors, while only 21% did not. Interestingly, 44% of Biden voters in 2020 agreed with the majority, while only 34% said transgenderism has not gone too far. Along racial and ethnic lines, 48% of African-Americans and 56% of Hispanics agreed with the majority of respondents.

The poll also found that most voters aren’t afraid to share their views on transgenderism with friends or family. Of those polled, 59% said they were not reluctant to share their views and 41% said they were reluctant. Individuals over 65 were more likely to not be reluctant to share their views, at 64%, than young people age 18-29, of whom only 38% said they were not reluctant to share their views.

Fifty-seven percent believed financial gain motivated the medical industry to provide gender transition services to children, while only 24% thought it wanted to help children. A significantly higher percentage of Trump 2020 voters than Biden 2020 voters believed the medical industry was motivated by financial gain. Of Trump voters, 76% said they were motivated by greed. Nevertheless, a still-sizable 39% of Biden voters shared this view.

Among the poll’s respondents, 59% thought minors were influenced to transition to the opposite sex, while only 27% thought children were transitioning because they were free to question their gender without judgement. Among younger voters (18–29), 49% believed the increase in transgenderism was due to outside influences.
