A recent poll conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) has found that 76 per cent of Americans are in support of laws that protect LGBTQ individuals from being discriminated against in housing, jobs and public life.
This is the highest level of LGBT support PRRI has ever recorded.
Just 19 per cent of respondents said they oppose LGBTQ rights.
Over the last few years, the annual poll has continuously found that an average of around the seven in ten people support LGBT rights; 72 per cent in 2019, 69 per cent in 2018, 70 per cent in 2017, 72 per cent in 2016, and 71 per cent in 2015.
The poll also found an increase in support for same-sex marriage, as 67 per cent. In 2018 and 2019, 62 per cent said they support same-sex marriage.
