Gay Infiltration in America: Americans Wildly Overestimate Number of Gay Population

by Warner Todd Huston | May 22, 2015 12:30 pm

Before we go any farther with this report, we must make it clear that only 3.8 percent of the U.S. population claim to be gay. Unfortunately, the gay agenda has grown so strong that a new poll of Americans finds that they think that 20 percent of the country’s population is gay. And Millennials even think it is higher than 35 percent.

Perhaps this shouldn’t be surprising when nearly every single TV show has gay characters and that gay issues fill the media, the news, our schools, and popular culture, all this might fool people[1] into thinking that there are far, far more gays than there actually are.

The American public estimates on average that 23% of Americans are gay or lesbian, little changed from Americans’ 25% estimate in 2011, and only slightly higher than separate 2002 estimates of the gay and lesbian population. These estimates are many times higher than the 3.8% of the adult population who identified themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender in Gallup Daily tracking in the first four months of this year.

The stability of these estimates over time contrasts with the major shifts in Americans’ attitudes about the morality and legality of gay and lesbian relations in the past two decades. Whereas 38% of Americans said gay and lesbian relations were morally acceptable in 2002, that number has risen to 63% today. And while 35% of Americans favored legalized same-sex marriage in 1999, 60% favor it today.

The U.S. Census Bureau documents the number of individuals living in same-sex households but has not historically identified individuals as gay or lesbian per se. Several other surveys, governmental and non-governmental, have over the years measured sexual orientation, but the largest such study by far has been the Gallup Daily tracking measure instituted in June 2012. In this ongoing study, respondents are asked “Do you, personally, identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender?” with 3.8% being the most recent result, obtained from more than 58,000 interviews conducted in the first four months of this year.

The fact is, when we tear down our culture for gays we are destroying our culture for less than 4 percent of the population. This is called a “tyranny of the minority.”
