HRC releases March Voter Snapshot

DETROIT (March 9, 2020) - Today, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) civil rights organization, released its March Voter Snapshot [https://assets2.hrc.org/files/assets/resources/March-Voters-Snapshot.pdf], which gives insight into the power of LGBTQ and Equality Voters in the remaining March primary and caucus states.

So far this primary season, LGBTQ voters have turned out in record numbers. In early states like New Hampshire, LGBTQ voters represented 7% of the electorate despite representing 4.7% of the population. On Super Tuesday, those numbers swelled even more. Across the Super Tuesday states overall, 9% of the electorate identified as LGBTQ, double the LGBTQ population of 4.4% across these states. [See https://twitter.com/HRC/status/1235007763606122498?s=20] for a state-by-state breakdown of Super Tuesday results.

"LGBTQ voters have shown up in record numbers in states across the country and cemented our status as a crucial constituency to court," said HRC President Alphonso David. "LGBTQ people and our allies are among the most politically engaged voters in the country, and Democratic presidential candidates are taking notice. LGBTQ and Equality Voters are fired up and ready to send the Trump-Pence administration packing."

The HRC has prioritized investments and organizing in six key states (Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin) since the launch of the HRC Rising Program in 2017. Since then, the HRC has had multiple staff members on the ground in each state. In 2018, the HRC made the most significant electoral investments in our history, mobilizing these Equality Voters to victories across all six targeted states, winning five of six US Senate races, [winning] four of six gubernatorial races, and flipping seven US House seats in the six states alone.

Nationwide, there are an estimated minimum of 11 million LGBTQ voters - and millions more allies - who will play a decisive role in the 2020 elections. Using decades of HRC polling, membership information and other proprietary data, the HRC worked with data-analytics firm Catalist to identify 57 million Equality Voters nationwide who prioritize LGBTQ-inclusive policies when making decisions about which candidates to support.

In 2018, the HRC utilized this data to mobilize Equality Voters in key races across the country and succeeded. Equality Voters accounted for 29% of the 2018 electorate, making it one of the most substantial voting blocs in the election. Their turnout increased from 36% in the 2014 midterm elections to 56% in 2018, a dramatic increase that is expected to continue in 2020.

The Human Rights Campaign is America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people. The HRC envisions a world where LGBTQ people are embraced as full members of society at home, at work, and in every community.
