WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews)— Swing state voters aren’t big fans of transgender ideology.
A new poll from the American Principles Project (APP) found that swing state voters support bans on “puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and physical sex change surgeries for children,” support “laws to protect women’s sports at the K-12 and collegiate levels” and want prohibitions on “instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity from kindergarten through third grade.”
APP and a survey company “polled 1,200 likely voters in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin” and asked them about different cultural issues, including transgenderism, pornography, and sex ed. APP released the results on Thursday and conducted the poll from May 2 to May 6.
“56 percent supported (33 percent opposed) laws to protect women’s sports at the K-12 and collegiate levels,” APP reported, while “56 percent supported (31 percent opposed) laws banning puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and physical sex change surgeries for children.”
Voters, by a 60 to 34 percent margin, supported laws like Florida’s that prohibit sexual instruction which can be used to groom kids in kindergarten through third grade.
A similar margin, 59 percent to 30 percent, support parental notification laws that require “schools to notify parents if their child identifies in class as transgender.”
Voters in the swing states also want to see age verification for online pornography — 77 percent say they want pornography websites to verify someone is 18 or older. 50 percent support laws to prevent the “censorship of political speech by Big Tech.”
The entire country has seen what happens when men enter women's sports.
Lia Thomas is a biological male, but he was nonetheless allowed swim against elite female competitors to win an NCAA Freestyle competition, much to the disappointment of those women who had trained so hard to compete.
SIGN THE PETITION TO BAN MALES FROM WOMEN'S SPORTS TODAY
Males have a natural advantage over females in the vast majority of sports, so allowing them to enter women's sports can:
- crush the motivation of the biological girls who have worked hard to compete on a level playing field
- put females into harm's way in contact sports and locker rooms
- deprive women of their right to fairly compete for college scholarships and many other accolades
We all know the spectacle of Lia Thomas defeating those female swimmers was a charade, a mockery of women's sports, but now it's time to do something about it.
Please SIGN this urgent petition calling on members of Congress to pass a law banning the participation of biological males in women's sports.
This is not just about ensuring biological girls and women can compete fairly and win in their chosen sports, but it's also a major safety issue in contact sports and the dangerous use of women's locker rooms by gender-confused males.
Some of you will remember Fallon Fox, the male MMA fighter who claimed to be a woman and left his female opponent concussed and with a fractured skull.
Fox later announced on social media that he enjoys "smacking up" women who "talk transphobic nonsense."
Any reasonable person knows men shouldn't compete against women, but some people are too politically correct to take a stand and protect girls and women from this madness.
It's now time to join the growing pushback against the gender-confused lobby and their dangerous beliefs that have literally left some female competitors in the hospital.
Please SIGN this common sense petition calling on Congress to ban all males from competing in women's sport.
Future generations will look back with gratitude on those who stood on the right side of history, defending women from these very confused males.
Nothing less than a federal ban on biological males forcing their way into women's sport is enough, so this petition will be sent to all members of Congress demanding legislative action.

Terry Schilling, the president of APP, said the takeaway is that cultural issues would help Republicans win elections.
“The results were consistent across the board. Strong majorities of voters support defending women’s sports, protecting kids from being pushed into sex changes, removing age-inappropriate sexual lessons from schools, and cracking down on Big Tech censorship,” Schilling said in the organization’s news release. “While the left-wing media may attack these positions as ‘bigoted,’ the truth is that these are commonsense views held by most Americans, even in highly competitive battleground states.”
“Republicans have a massive opportunity on each of these issues to go on offense and expose the radical extremism of Democrats,” he stated. “We would strongly encourage them to do so — starting by joining the more than 100 candidates nationwide who have signed APP’s Big Family Pledge.”
“Given the stakes of this year’s midterms, the GOP cannot afford to let this advantage go unclaimed,” he stated.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis supports a ban on the surgeries and legislation is in the works. His surgeon general, Dr. Joseph Ladapo, released guidance in April that advised medical professionals not to prescribe puberty blockers, hormone therapies or conduct “gender reassignment surgery” on minors.
