The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has released a report showing the LGBTQIA+ community swung its support behind President-elect Joe Biden in the November election.

Releasing exit poll data collected by HRC and Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research the report highlighted LGBTQIA+ and equality voters potentially gave him the boost needed to swing states across the country.

The HRC/Greenberg poll showed 83% of LGBTQIA+ voters and 79% of equality voters supported Joe Biden.  

37% of general election voters prioritised LGBTQIA+ issues, an 8% lift compared to the 2018 midterm elections.

HRC campaign president, Alphonso David said via a statement that the LGBTQIA+ community in the US were voting more.

“Over the last three elections, the share of LGBTQIA+ voters and equality voters has continued to increase, solidifying our community and our allies as a key rising constituency that can make or break a politician’s success.

“Our issues matter, our votes matter and politicians around the country have taken notice. This development did not occur in a single cycle, but rather through sustained efforts by the Human Rights Campaign to identify and improve turnout amongst these groups. Now with pro-equality control restored in the White House, the future of our community and our movement is bright,” David said.

President-elect Biden has a strong history of supporting the LGBTQIA+ community, recently saying, “As President, I will continue standing with you to build a more equal, more inclusive United States, where every member of the LGBTQ+ community is safe and respected,” Biden said.
