FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Poll: Nearly 80 Percent Say Women’s Sports Harmed by Allowing Transgender Competitors
(Manitou Springs, CO—March 6, 2023) Summit.org, in partnership with McLaughlin and Associates—one of America’s most respected polling survey firms—is releasing the results of a recent national survey. Results were from a survey of 1,000 likely general election voters nationwide and was conducted February 17th through February 22nd.
“Corporate and government elites are trying to have it both ways. They say they support women, yet they refuse to say what a woman actually is and are pursuing policies that cause harm to women. In a very short period of time a coordinated effort between the transgender industry, which profits from exploiting children and teens, and its allies in government have created a catastrophe for America’s girls and women, and it is only going to get worse,” said Dr. Jeff Myers, President of Summit.org and co-author of the new eBook Exposing the Gender Lie: How to Protect Children and Teens from the Transgender Industry’s False Ideology. “Americans see this with absolute clarity and want it to stop. Our new book details how parents can get in front of the agenda that is behind the attack, protect their families with the truth, and debunk the lies perpetuated by the transgender industry.”
All interviews were conducted online; survey invitations were distributed randomly within predetermined geographic units. These units were structured to correlate with actual voter turnout in the general election. This poll of 1,000 general election voters has an accuracy of +/- 3.1% at a 95% confidence interval.
