Seventy-nine percent (79%) of Republicans believe such transgender athletes have an unfair advantage. So do 65% of Independent voters and 57% of Democrats.

The survey of 1,200 Registered Voters was conducted online by Scott Rasmussen on February 24-27, 2022. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Certain quotas were applied, and the sample was lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, internet usage, and political party to reasonably reflect the nation’s population of Registered Voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.
The margin of sampling error for the full sample is +/- 2.8 percentage points.
