Americans have perhaps never been under greater pressure to profess things that they know are not true. Despite the suffocating insanity of woke culture, many Americans are rejecting its ideological delusions and holding fast to common sense and principle.
With President Joe Biden and his Democratic allies ramping up a crusade to normalize the idea that men and women are identical, a new poll finds that a plurality of Iowa residents — somewhat narrowly — still support requiring students to use bathrooms that correspond with their sex, Breitbart reported.
About 47% of those surveyed in the Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll said they agree with the requirement. Forty-two percent said they did not.
Some 11% of those surveyed said they weren’t sure either way. The poll surveyed about 775 Iowans aged 18 or older with a 3.5-% margin of error.
The results found a closely partisan divide, with 80% of Republicans in favor of bathroom use that corresponds with biological reality, and 14% opposed. On the other hand, 15% of Democrats support the requirement, but 71% opposed it.
A majority of men support the requirement, 60% in favor and 30% opposed. Women opposed it by 54%, with 35% in favor.
The survey comes as Biden and the Democrats push the transgender agenda that began in Obama’s second term to aggressive, previously unheard of extremes.
Conservative response forming
The polarizing Equality Act, which ostensibly prevents discrimination against transgender and gay individuals, has been at the forefront in the culture wars. Conservatives say it will undermine religious liberty and force women to compete with men in sports leagues and share gendered spaces like bathrooms.
A conservative response to Biden’s transgender push has been forming in various states, with Republicans leading efforts to protect women’s sports from proposals like the Equality Act.
Tennessee signed a bill into law to that effect last week, following Arkansas and Mississippi.
Conservatives have faced setbacks, with a bill to codify gender-specific bathrooms recently stalling in Iowa’s state legislature after passing a Senate subcommittee for the first time.
