When asked by the American Values Atlas if they supported "laws that protect gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people against discrimination in jobs, public accommodations, and housing," 76% of Americans answered yes.

Support for nondiscrimination protection came in at 59% among conservative Republicans, 73% among liberal Republicans, and 75% among moderate Republicans.

The survey also found that 42% of Americans were classified as "completely in favor of pro-LGBTQ policies," 27% were "somewhat in favor of pro-LGBTQ policies," 13% were "somewhat against pro-LGBTQ policies" and 7% were "completely against pro-LGBTQ policies."
