A new left-wing poll has revealed there is "broad support" for the Republicans' push to ban transgender athletes from competing in female sports events.

The survey was commissioned by the left-leaning news outlet Politico and shows support across the political spectrum for banning biological males from girls' athletics.

“Former President Donald Trump railed against transgender athletes in female sports in his CPAC speech a few weeks ago,” Politico reports.

"Other prominent voices on the right have joined in, calling it an example of political correctness having a real-world impact.

"Our latest POLITICO/Morning Consult poll shows broad support for the GOP position, extending across gender, age and, to a lesser degree, party.

“Overall, 53% of registered voters support banning transgender athletes from competing in women’s sports, versus a third who oppose such a ban.”

One of the most surprising takeaways from the poll was that more millennials support the move than do baby boomers, and fewer millennials oppose it than do baby boomers.

Politico highlighted the following numbers from their survey:

  • Men: 59% support a ban, 29% oppose
  • Women: 46% support a ban, 34% oppose
  • Republicans: 74% support a ban, 15% oppose
  • Dems: 40% support a ban, 42% oppose
  • Independents: 49% support a ban, 33% oppose
  • Gen Z: 43% support a ban, 44% oppose
  • Millennials: 56% support a ban, 28% oppose
  • Baby boomers: 50% support a ban, 32% oppose

Numerous states have started considering legislation to protect girls from having to compete against biological males in sports, and legislation on similar issues.

As mentioned by Politico, Trump shredded Joe Biden and the Democrats during his CPAC speech over the issue.


“Joe Biden and the Democrats are even pushing policies that would destroy women’s sports,” Trump said.

“Lot of new records are being broken in women’s sports.

"Hate to say that, ladies, but got a lot of new records that [are] being shattered. You know, for years, the weightlifting, every ounce is like a big deal for many years.

"All of a sudden, somebody comes along and beats it by 100 pounds.”

“Now, young girls and women are incensed that they are now being forced to compete against those who are biological males,” Trump continued.

“It’s not good for women. It’s not good for women’s sports, which worked so long and so hard to get to where they are.

"The records that stood for years, even decades, are now being smashed with ease, smashed.

"If this is not changed, women’s sports, as we know it, will die, they’ll end, it’ll end.

"What coach, if I’m a coach, you know, I want to be a great coach, what coach, as an example, wants to recruit a young woman to compete if her record can easily be broken by somebody who was born a man?

"Not too many of those coaches around, right?

"If they are around, they won’t be around long because they’re gonna have a big problem when the record is, ‘We’re 0-16, but we’re getting better.’

"No, I think it’s crazy, I think it’s just crazy what’s happening.

"We must protect the integrity of women’s sports — so important.”

Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., called attention to the issue this week during International Women’s Day.

“I want to congratulate all the great female athletes out there,” Trump Jr. wrote on Instagram in a post that included photographs of biological males competing against women.
